Coverage progresses from electromagnetic wave theory of light to geometrical optics, laser beams and resonators, light-matter interactions, and semiconductor lasers, as well as anisotropic media and modulation of light, noise and optical detection, dielectric waveguides and optical fibers, and nonlinear optics.
The course offers 10 modules: nature and properties of light, light sources and laser safety, basic geometrical optics, basic physical optics, lasers, optical detectors and human vision, optical waveguides and fibers, fiber optic telecommunications, photonic devices for imaging and display, and basic principles and applications of holography.
That expression, as I have shown, can have two meanings: it can mean hypothetical in the sense of reasoning that is merely probable, and so not strictly "scientific," which was Bellarmine's sense; it can also refer to suppositions that ground physico-mathematical demonstrations such as are found in geometrical optics, Archimedean statics, and the medieval science of weights, all regarded as sciences at that time.
He covers geometrical optics, aberrations and image quality, radiometry, optical sources, detectors and focal plane arrays, and optomechanical design.
