PHO* 101: Introduction To Photonics

4 Credits
This course explores optics as a science underlying many new “photonics” technologies such as laser manufacturing, arthroscopic surgery, CD and DVD technology, and fiber optic telecommunications. The course will focus on the nature, production, and behavior of light and cover common optical devices such as lenses and prisms. Throughout the course, we will emphasize optics application in medicine, communications, manufacturing and nature. The lab that accompanies this course will illustrate and reinforce concepts by duplicating the classic experiments in optics and photonics. Class: 3 hours per week. Laboratory: 2 hours per week.
Prerequisites: Permission of instructor.
Offered: Occasionally
