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


Physics 481581 physical optics

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


Grading summary

Grading: summary

  • Homework 20%

  • Labs 20%

  • Worksheets 10%

  • Midterm (tentatively Feb 15) 20%

  • Final (Tue, March 20, 9:30-11:30 AM) 30%
