Optics - cmop1webgr

Course 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.
