Special Topics in Modern Optics
In this course, we will explore four Optical techniques and see how they contribute to material characterization, image processing, data storage, and communication. Students in this course will gain working knowledge and learn principles behind the techniques. Hopefully by the end of the course, the students will be aroused to learn more Optics and start applying Optics to solve technical problems.
Optical pump and probe, spatial filtering of optical information, holography, and optical wireless communication. Applications in material characterization, pattern recognition, 3D imaging of live cells, and indoor wireless communication.
