Students extend their knowledge from the ray optics through the matrix optics, subsequently and further by the description of optical systems using Gaussian beams, towards wave and quantum optics. Then students will learn the basic mechanisms and principles of fiber optics.

Optical Measurement (BE2M17OPM)

Course guarantor: prof. Ing. Stanislav Zvánovec, Ph.D.

The main aim of this course is to introduce students to optical measurement techniques starting from the detection of microparticles, irregularities, and surface damage, through the use of fiber optics in areas where usage of standard electronic sensors is not possible as in places with increased risk of explosion and hospitals, moving onto lidars for use in intelligent transport infrastructures and finishing with macroscopic sensing (remote sensing) of the Earth, atmosphere, and space. These measurement techniques require, in particular, a deep understanding of the physical mechanisms on which they are based, as well as knowledge of measurement procedures and specifics in data processing and data reconstruction.
