We go over the class syllabus and introduce some basic concepts of optics - what makes optical radiation different than other forms of electromagnetic radiation.Modern Optics provides a framework for understanding and analyzing optical
wave propagation, interference, polarization and diffraction effects. This
framework is essential for those who will work with imaging systems, lasers,
optical communication systems, and optical measurements. http://www.sjsu.edu/faculty/beyersdorf/Phys158/1-24%20The%20Nature%20of%20Light.m4aThu, 24 Jan 2008 13:14:23 -0800Higher Educationno01:16:38beiersdorf, byersdorf, pedrottiPhysics 158 SyllabusPeter BeyersdorfSyllabus for Physics 158 at SJSU, Spring 2008Syllabus for Physics 158 at SJSU, Spring 2008http://www.sjsu.edu/faculty/beyersdorf/Phys158/Physics%20158%20Syllabus.pdfThu, 10 Jan 2008 10:31:50 -0800Higher Educationno00:00:00beiersdorf, byersdorf, pedrotti
