Comprehension of the natural phenomena related to Optics. Acquisition of the knowledge of geometrical optics, and aberrations, light propagation in dielectric media, polarization, interference, diffraction and Fourier Optics.
The skills requested at the end of the course are:
- The capacity of learning and capacity of using data bases and electronics journals
- The achievement of an adequate level of basic knowledge, that will allow the student to deepen in the future specific topics about the course, also by consulting advanced textbooks and specialized journals.

The student must be familiar with the principles of wave propagation in dieletric materials and with the laws of classical Electromagnetism

•Atmospherical optical phenomena
•Review of wave propagation and electromagnetic theory (chap.1-3)
•Light propagation (chap.4)
•Geometrical Optics (chap.5)
•Wave superposition (chap.7)
•Polarization (chap.8)
•Interference (chap.9)
•Fraunhofer and Fresnel diffraction (Chap.10)
•Fourier Optics (Chap.11)

The chapters indicated refer to the book “Optics” by Hecht.

Lectures at the blackboard with additional experiments in the laboratory for the observation of the natural optical phenomena

Preparation of laboratory reports and oral exam.
The exam consists in at least three questions on the different parts of the program (polarization, reflections and scattering, geometrical optics and aberrations, diffraction and Fourier Optics)
The answers should develop the requested topics, and for each question the student will get up to 10 points. The final score will be the sum of these three points. In the case of maximum score (30), the student will be given a third question for the merit, in order to evaluate the capacity of the student to reason on topics slightly outside the course program, even if tightly connected.

Book “OPTICS” by Eugene Hecht, 4th Edition (International edition).
