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. The material will be extended and somewhat more advanced than in the lectures of previous years.

Assessment and permitted materials

Optional homework assignments will be provided every few weeks. The test will also contain additional material from the lectures.
Due to the Covid situation, the test will be an oral examination by video, using Big Blue Button in Moodle. Details and hints for preparing for the exam will be posted on Moodle by the end of the lecture period.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

A score of 50% on the final examination is required to pass the course.

Examination topics

The exam will cover the material presented in the lectures, including homework assignments.

Reading list

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