New Eyes for the World: Hands-On Optical Engineering
This hands-on lab course introduces students to several modern topics of engineering optics. Teams of students will carry out four different projects: (i) holography, (ii) lasers (iii) free-space optical communication, and (iv) nanotechnology. The course teaches the foundations and broader societal issues of these technologies. The laboratory sessions involve hands-on instructional training, as well as individual experimentation and exploration. Skills acquired in this course include computer programming of user interfaces, data acquisition and interpretation, wet chemical processing, and electronics design assembly.
