ELEC 553 Optical Engineering

3 semester hours

The objective of this course is to study the fundamentals of photonics. The concepts that are covered in the course include basics of optical science, ray optics, wave optics, beam optics, Fourier optics, electromagnetic optics, polarization of light, guided wave optics, fiber optics, and electro-optics. The applications studied in the course include design of free space optical imaging systems, design of optical waveguides, optical computing, optical sensing, etc. Students also have two workshops on two software packages used in industry to design optical systems.

Lecture, 3 hours.
