ELEN E4488 — Optical Systems
Lecturer: Prof, Christine P. Fleming Hendon
Optics is a highly disciplinary field with broad impact on numerous contemporary engineering systems including communications, displays, networking, imaging, and micro/nano-fabrication to name just a few. Understanding the fundamental nature of this enabling technology and learning how to go about designing systems for these and other important applications are extremely valuable toolsets for the modern engineer. This course will examine the field of optics from an engineering perspective, beginning with the basic electromagnetic theory required for a higher-level understanding and commencing with the tools required to design a variety of optical systems.
