Presentation Transcript

### Physics 481/581Physical Optics

Instructor: OksanaOstroverkhova

Weniger 413

Class TA: Matt Cibula

Class hours: MWF 10-11, Weniger 304

Office hours: TF 1-2

Labs: R 9-11:50 AM or 1-3:50 PM, Weniger 426

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 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 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

Grading: summary

- Homework 20%
- Labs 20%
- Worksheets 10%
- Midterm (tentatively Feb 15) 20%
- Final (Tue, March 20, 9:30-11:30 AM) 30%
