This course covers the fundamental principles of light, such as the terminology relating to light, the behavior of light in different environments, and light generation and manipulation. Concepts such as reflection, refraction, diffraction, and absorption of light will be explained theoretically and through simple experiments. Course participants will be exposed to basic optical components used in a photonics lab, and they will learn how to use various mounts, the importance of properly cleaning optical components, how coatings can change, and the properties of an optical component. This course also provides basic training on the use of a low-power laser and optical power meter with an emphasis on laser safety concepts.
