Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course aims to bridge the gap between theoretical textbooks and the "real world" of the scientist who uses optical instruments and detectors. Examples are drawn from the teacher's experience in universities and in industry. Topics include the analysis of lenses, telescopes, and cameras, different models of light, optical design, CCD detection, polarization, interferometers, color, and more. Students may influence the choice of special topics, and questions from students are welcome during lectures.

Assessment and permitted materials

Every two or three lectures, homework will be assigned that requires calculations and derivations from material of the previous lectures. There will be a total of 5-7 assignments.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

At least four homework assignments must be submitted in order to receive a grade. For the best grade, all homeworks must be completed.

Examination topics

There is no separate exam for the course. Only the homeworks are required.

Reading list

There is no required textbook, but recommendations will be made during lectures.
