Course Objectives To introduce the concepts of light propagation, generation and detection, coherent and incoherent light, and develop the hands-on skills of the students in the area of photonics.
Textbook F. L. Pedrotti, L. S. Pedrotti, and L. M. Pedrotti, Introduction to Optics, 3rd ed., Prentice Hall, B.E.A. Saleh, M.C. Teich, Fundamentals of Photonics
Learning Outcomes After successful  completion of the course, the student will be able to:
  1. Describe and analyze ligh-matter and light-light interaction, dependence on polarization, wavelength, temporal and spatial coherence
  2. Formulate the principle on which lasers are based and operate in different regimes
  3. Differentiate between different methods of light detection
  4. Apply principles of photonics in experimental testing
Teaching Methods Class discussions with examples, team projects that involve engineering problems, interpretation and reporting.
