    Course Catalog Description
    This course develops the requisite introductory knowledge in optics needed by a student in the graduate program in Imaging Science. The course will cover topics including geometrical optics, the Fresnel equations, diffraction, and resolution of imaging systems Class 4, Credit 4 (W)

    Class Meeting Times:
    Classes meet during the scheduled time, MW 10AM - 12N EST. Offcampus students are urged to be online at this time, but the lectures will be recorded (assuming that everything works) for viewings/listenings at later times. I plan to use the same system used in 1051-716 Fourier Methods in 20091 with the scanner pad; the pages of notes will be posted online after the course. I will be available during other times TBD for questions and other assistance.

    Recommended Readings: As is generally true for all graduate courses, the scope of the material is not covered completely in any one book. Students should plan to spend some time in the library becoming familiar with the range of available books on the subject.
