After passing this module the student;
- Can analyse geometrical optical systems.
In this module part the student carries out a number of experiments on geometrical optics. To support the experiments, the theoretical basis of paraxial optics will be studied. Topics that will be covered in both theory and experiment are: refraction, imaging by lenses (including lens systems), matrix methods in paraxial optics, wavelength dispersion, and optical aberrations. The nature of the experiments are research and/or design oriented. In addition, data analysis skills will be further developed. Here the focus is on non-linear relations and data extrapolation.|
The assessment plan for this course will be published no later than 2 weeks before the starting block of the course on https://www.utwente.nl/nl/tn/onderwijs/toetsschemas/
