Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To acquaint oneself with general rules of use of optical radiation in measurement methods and with various methods of measuring refractive index, phase changes and changes of polarization state, and measurements of length, displacement and surface topography, respectively.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


Within this application subject knowledge of optics will be further developed and deepened to provide an overview of basics of optical diagnostics.
