This course is an intermediate treatment of optical physics, which builds and expands upon the material covered early in the major. Topics include complex and three dimensional representation of wave motion, advanced treatment of reflection and refraction, optical component and device analysis including treatment of aberrations, wave superposition analysis, electromagnetic field equation analysis of polarisation and applications, field equation analysis of interference and diffraction, Fourier optics and coherence, and modern optical applications.
