Overview

Optics is the ‘enabling technology’ of the 21st century. To design optical systems, to specify and test optical components, to integrate optical components into products, requires knowledge and skills that can be learned in the CMOP course. Over the years the CMOP course has become one of the most comprehensive optical courses in Western Europe, unique in its concept, starting with theoretical basics, via practical optical system design and ending with a broad overview of optical applications.

Objective

After the course, the participant will have a thorough knowledge of modern optical concepts, their applications and the design of optical systems, the engineering problems and solutions.

Intended for

The course is intented for optical designers working in research and development of optical systems. Educational level should be technical university (physics, electronics, mechanics). Prerequisite: a thorough basic knowledge of optics and practical experience in optical systems.

Programme

- Gratings

System design (13 lessons):

- Measuring and testing

- Paraxial optics

- Geometrical optics
- Imaging systems

- Lens design

- Optical engineering
