OSE6111 - Optical Wave Propagation
Optical propagation of light waves as applied to isotropic, anisotropic, inhomogeneous media, guided waves and Gaussian beams.
This course discusses the fundamentals properties of light propagation in free space and inside various technologically relevant materials, as well as the effect of materials interfaces on light propagation. The covered propagation modes include plane waves, Gaussian beams, and Floquet modes. Isotropic, anisotropic (uniaxial, biaxial), and periodic (1D, 2D) media are covered.
