Course description
Optical physics is the study of the fundamental properties of light and its interaction with matter. Optics is at the heart of many of the world's most powerful scientific instruments, enabling, for example, modern telescopes to achieve previously unimaginable resolution. The course is open to students interested in studying classical optical phenomena such as reflection, refraction, diffraction and interference, but also in studying the quantum mechanical properties of individual packets of lights known as photons. Classes 1 to 7 will be conducted by Dr. Aaryashree and classes 8 to 14 will be conducted by Dr. Uma Maheswari Rajagopalan.
Purpose of class
The purpose is to understand the behaviour and properties of light, including its interactions with matter and the construction and principles of instruments that are used to detect it. Topics covered include the propagation of light, light detection, polarization, interferometry, diffractometry, lasers and optical instrumentation needed for many areas of research and engineering fields.
