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 choose and carry out four different projects: (i) holography, (ii) lasers (iii) free-space optical communication, and/or (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, data acquisition and interpretation, wet chemical processing, and electronics design assembly.
