Discussion Session:
M 56 pm in 293 Cory
Lab Session:
Monday 12 pm, Monday 4 pm, and Tuesday 3 pm in 144F Cory (Enter into the main instruction electronics lab at 144 Cory. The optics lab is on your left.)
Prerequisite:
Physics 7C.
Primary Text:
Optics, 4th edition, by Eugene Hecht,
(Addison Wesley Longman, 2002)
Supplementary Text:
Modern Optical Engineering, 3th ed., Warren J. Smith, Mc Graw
Hill, 2000)
Course Details:
Optical devices are employed in an ever increasing range of
applications, from simple lenses to electronic cameras and displays, to
complex fiberoptic communication networks. This course provides an
introduction to modern optical engineering, covering the fundamental
concepts as well as practical techniques and applications. Basic optical
principles are presented, particularly reflection, refraction,
aberrations, diffraction, interference, brightness and coherence.
Practical aspects of optical materials will be covered as well. Building
on this foundation, a wide variety of optical devices and processes are
then discussed, including lenses and imaging systems, prisms, simple
optical instruments, fiber optics, photodetectors, holography, and
lasers.
General topics include followings:
Fundamental principles of optical systems. Geometrical optics and
aberration theory. Stops and apertures, prisms and mirrors.
Diffraction and interference. Optical materials and coatings.
Radiometry and photometry. Basic optical devices and the human eye.
The design of optical systems. Lasers, fiber optics, and holography.

Midterm/Final:
Final Will be on Saturday, May 16, from 8 am to 11 am. Practice finals are posted below.
Midterm will be on Monday, March 9, 2009, in class.
Midterm is Closed book, closed notes. you man bring 1 8.5 by 11 sheet of paper and a calculator. No cell phone or PDA calculators. The exam will cover everything up through and including cameras.
You haven't had a problem set on cameras yet, but you should understand all the boxed expressions in the notes and understand how cameras relate to some of the more general principles of optical systems (including, but not limited to, focal lengths, aperture stops, field stops, magnification).
