Learning outcomes of the course unit:
On the basis of knowledge acquired from previous studies to provide students an overview of the physical principles used in classical and modern linear and non-linear optics and opto-electronics. The emphasis is given to understand the physical nature of basic phenomena used in selected technical applications through knowledge of the theory of electromagnetic field, quantum physics and physics of materials. The student receives information about the mathematical tools of the matrix formulation of the paraxial optics, optical signal processing, partial coherence theory, geometrical optics, classical and quantum theory of radiation, radiation detection and also the mathematical tools of the theory of linear optical transfer systems and Fourier optics. Student will gain knowledge about basic optical phenomena, about interaction of the radiation with matter and will be able to solve practical problems of of the modern technical optics.
Course contents:
Introduction to quantum theory of optical radiation and its interaction with the matter. Principles of laser operation. Material dispersion. Wave theory of radiation and related optical phenomena (reflection, refraction, total reflection, absorption, inteference and diffraction, polarization. Spatial and temporal coherence.
The Fresnel-Kirchhoff diffraction theory. The Fresnel diffraction and the Fraunhofer diffraction. Fourier optics. Linear transfer systems theory in optics. Optical filtration. Radiation scattering. Geometrical optics approximation, matrix formulation of paraxial optics, optical instrumentation, abberations.
Birefringence. Optical activity. Principles of light modulation and demodulation. Introduction to non-linear optical phenomena. Light propagation in linear and non linear waveguides.
