ECE 41300 - Introduction to Optics LaboratoryLab Hours: 3 Credits: 1 Professional Attributes
Upper Level Lab
Normally Offered: Each Spring
ECE 30100 and (ECE 20008 or ECE 20800) and (ECE 30411 or ECE 31100) and ECE 41200 [may be taken concurrently]
A set of laboratory experiments dealing with fundamentals and applications of geometrical optics, polarization optics, wave optics and Fourier optics.
This laboratory course is designed around three goals. First, the student should find confirmation and reinforcement of topics covered in EE 412. Second, the student should be able to apply optical principals to the solution of problems, and to be able to define limitations to these applications. Third, the student should acquire "breadboarding" skills, i.e. be able to build an optical instrument by assembling a set of optical components.
Will be offered spring only semesters effective fall 2016.
Required Text(s): None.
