299 Cory Hall
This course deals with the diffraction theory of imaging, including partial
coherence and aberrations. Topics include Fresnel and Fraunhofer approximations,
Fourier transform property of lenses, frequency analysis of imaging systems,
aberrations and Zernike polynomials, interferometry, partial coherence
and fringe visibility, propagation of mutual coherence, van Cittert-Zernike
theorem, effect of illumination on image formation, Hopkins imaging formula,
holography. Application areas to be discussed include wavefront engineering
in photolithography, computer generated holograms, and image processing.
