The course is intended to be a brief but comprehensive description of some of the most relevant theoretical models (geometrical, wave and quantum optics) and phenomena (light propagation, polarization, interference, difrraction, scattering) in optics and photonics. It will also cover some relevant topics in modern optics (optic fibers, non-lineal systems, electro and acousto-optics).
On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
2 written exams (each 2 hours) (75%), exercises (25%). Exercices assessment based on 2 or 3 days of lab.work
Alphabetical Scale, A(best) – F (fail)
One internal and one external examiner
Ordinary re-sit for the written exam.
