|672||Photonics Laboratory, 4 hr., 2 cr.|
In this lab students will design and carry out experiments related to the fields of optics and photonics. They will learn basic experimental skills required to work with various optical instruments and components (lasers, optical fibers, filters, spectrometers, etc). Students will compare the results of experiments with theoretical predictions and learn how to write scientific and technical reports. Special attention will be paid to proper ways of collecting and analyzing experimental data and to safety procedures.
