Aims
After passing this module the student;
  • Can analyse geometrical optical systems.
Content
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.

Assessment Plan
T
he 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/

Participation for non-TN students
This course is only accessible to non-TN students after permission from Technische Natuurkunde Programme. See https://www.utwente.nl/en/bap/courses-applied-physics/
 
Assumed previous knowledge
Students are expected to have experimental skills such as keeping logbooks and performing error analysis on experimental data. Furthermore students should be familiar with basic linear algebra.
