Wave optics (E361021)

Interested in tracing photons? Not scared by a bit of math?

In this course you’ll enter into the ambiguous world of particles and waves. You’ll get familiar with phenomena of interference, diffraction, dispersion. You’ll learn how lasers work, how to design a thin layer structure, what spectrometers and interferometers are good for. Measurement in labs is an essential part of the course: you’ll record a spectrum, measure the radius of a “plane” mirror, measure the refraction index of air.
