This course teaches principles of geometrical and physical optics that can be applied in the fields of electronics, instrumentation, telecommunications, and biomedical equipment. The first half of this course will be focused the fundamentals of geometrical optics. Participants will learn how to manipulate light using mirrors and lenses. The theoretical analysis based on ray-tracing techniques and mathematical equations will be introduced and then followed by lab experiments. In the second half of this course, the participants will dig deeper into the fundamentals of physical optics, such as interference patterns through single and double slits, pinholes, and diffraction gratings. Course participants will also be introduced to the basics of laser construction and principles of laser operation.
