Optics

An introduction to classical and modern optics.

An introduction to classical and modern optics, this course demonstrates how it has fundamental applications in fields as diverse as astronomy, medicine, communications and lighting. 

Optical phenomena are ubiquitous in nature and optical technologies pervade almost every sphere of human life. In this course, we synthesise material taught in earlier courses. You will learn canonical experiments spanning ray optics, polarisation, Fourier optics, interferometry, and microscopy. 

This course will also set the foundation for students interested in both postgraduate level courses in optics and in careers in optical science and engineering.
