Optical and Laser Engineering Applications ENSC 470 (4)
A practical, hands-on introduction to optical engineering and lasers. Covers the concepts of light, optics (geometric optics, Gaussian optics, multiple optical elements, lens aberrations), laser concepts, operational details of major laser types, laser interactions with optical systems, laser applications in engineering and medicine, complex optical system design and fiber optics. Labs cover optical systems, lasers measurements, optical CAD design, holography. Prerequisite: Completion of 80 units including (PHYS 121 or 126 or 141) and (MATH 260 or MATH 310), with a minimum grade of C-.
