The four modules in ED-OPTICS (polarisation, reflection and refraction, diffraction, interference & coherence) examine various topics in physical optics and provide a solid grounding in the fundamental optical principles that are applied in various optical systems and instruments.
The four modules (POL, R&R, DIFF, I&C) can be supplied individually, or combined as a modular / complete package.
Malus’ Law, Properties of half, quarter & arbitrary wave plates, States of polarisation, Strain birefringence & sensing
- Reflection & Refraction
Snell’s Law, Fresnel Equations, Brewster’s Angle, Critical angle, TIR, Refractive index determination
Fraunhofer & Fresnel diffraction at slits / apertures, Reflection and transmission gratings, Laser wavelength determination
- Interference and Coherence
Michelson interferometer, Optical surface quality, Optical element measurements, Laser coherence & cavity length measurements
Instruments may be required. Please contact us for further information.
