Universität Wien FIND

Return to Vienna for the summer semester of 2022. We are planning to hold courses mainly on site to enable the personal exchange between you, your teachers and fellow students. We have labelled digital and mixed courses in u:find accordingly.

Due to COVID-19, there might be changes at short notice (e.g. individual classes in a digital format). Obtain information about the current status on u:find and check your e-mails regularly.

Please read the information on https://studieren.univie.ac.at/en/info.

Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The aim of the course is to obtain an understanding of the quantum properties of light via solving related exercises.

Topics include: review of classical optics; polarization; lasers and cavities; interferometry; photon statistics; nonclassical states of light; linear and nonlinear optics;

Assessment and permitted materials

The exercises (PUE) are a continuous assessment course intended as preparation for the module exam. Registration for the PUE is not mandatory but recommended. Note: Participation in the PUE is only possible with a valid registration for the course. Upon registration, attendance is obligatory. All registered students will be graded according to the PUE assessment criteria. The PUE grade does NOT affect the module exam grade.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The grade for the PUE is determined from:

1) Points achieved in a written exam towards the end of the semester, which serves as preparation for the module exam (1.5h, max. 50 points).

2) Points achieved in the continuous evaluation of homework (moodle based) (max. 50 points).

For positive evaluation, at least 25 points have to be achieved in each of the two criteria mentioned above. If that is the case, the final grade will be determined from the sum of the points as:

50-62 Points: Genügend
63-75 Points: Befriedigend
76-87 Points: Gut
88-100 Points: Sehr Gut

Examination topics

Topics related to the lecture and the PUE.

Reading list

'Physics of Light and Optics', J. Peatross and M. Wave
'The quantum theory of light', R. Loudon
