textbook
Textbook

Main textbook:

Eugene Hecht, “Optics”, 4th Ed.

Other texts:

M. Born, E. Wolf, “Principles of Optics” (much more rigorous)

G. Fowler, “Introduction to Modern Optics”

E. Steward, “Fourier optics: an introduction”

homework
Homework
  • Homework is given at every class and is due at the beginning of the next class, unless stated otherwise
  • No late homework is accepted, as the solutions are given at the class
  • Work with others is encouraged, but write it up yourself
  • Write enough of text, so that I see that you understand what you are doing
  • Homework will be timely graded and returned
  • Homework will contribute 20% to the overall grade

Labs
  • Hands-on experience is very important
  • There will be 9 labs (starting from the next week and up to the last week of classes)
  • Lab reports are due at the next lab session (i.e. you have 1 week to complete the report)
  • Lab reports will be graded by the TA and returned in a timely fashion
  • Material learned during labs can also appear at the midterm and final exam
  • Labs will contribute 20% to the overall grade
worksheets
Worksheets
  • Worksheets will be given at each (or almost each) class
  • These will have one or two questions on the material either covered in class or based on reading assignment
  • Worksheets will be graded and returned in timely fashion
  • Worksheets will contribute 10% to the overall grade
