2.717 Optical Engineering

Class Info

Theory and practice of optical methods in engineering and system design. Emphasis on diffraction, statistical optics, holography, and imaging. Provides engineering methodology skills necessary to incorporate optical components in systems serving diverse areas such as precision engineering and metrology, bio-imaging, and computing (sensors, data storage, communication in multi-processor systems). Experimental demonstrations and a design project are included.

This class has 2.710 as a prerequisite.

2.717 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by P. T. So and G. Barbastathis.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
