Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Calculus in one and many variables. Oscillations and waves. Linear algebra.

Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to give basic knowledge elektromagnetic waves with a focus on optics.
After successful examination the student should;

  • be able to solve problems related to geometrical optics
  • be able to solve problems related to wave optics
  • be able to solve problems related to photon optics


Furthermore, the student should be able to;

  • perform optical measurements
  • present measurements, results and conclusions

 

Course content

Ray optics, wave optics, photon optics.

Teaching and working methods

The lectures are meant to give a basic understanding of the subject. During lectures the most important theory sections are presented together with some applied exercises. The knowledge is deepened and applied through special problem solving sessions. The course also contains laboratory work related to optics.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
