PHYS 517- Modern Applied Optics

Modern Applied Optics (PHYS 517) Course Details

Course Name: Modern Applied Optics
Code: PHYS 517
Pre-requisite Course(s):  
Objective: Quantum optics is a field in physics, dealing with the application of quantum mechanics to phenomena involving light and its interactions with matter. This course deals with the fundamentals of light waves and the basics of their classical description and understanding of lasers and their applicatios, i.e, photonics. 
Content: Topics include study of photons, laser fundamentals, laser design and LEDs.  The course also reviews typical applications such as material processing, information technology, holography and optical fibers. A student taking this course will be provided with the principles of lasers, LEDs as well as fiber optics and their applications.
