Description: The course covers the fundamental properties of light propagation and interaction with matter under the approximations of geometrical optics and scalar wave optics, as well as the fundamentals of optical microscopy. The course emphasizes a system approach to the analysis and design of optical systems from a user and an engineering perspective, focusing on the physical intuition and underlying mathematical tools, and application of the physical concepts to topical engineering domains such as a selection of microscopy techniques. Students will have direct hands-on experience with optics and optical imaging systems in the classroom. Additional coursework required beyond the undergraduate course requirements. Cross-list: ELEC 487. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for ELEC 582 if student has credit for ELEC 482.
