4 CREDIT HOURS
Corequisite: MAT* K095  OR MAT* K095I .
Optics is the science underlying technologies such as laser manufacturing, 3-D holograms, arthroscopic surgery, CD and DVD technology, fiber optic telecommunications and high efficiency LED lighting.In this course we will explore the nature, production and behavior of light while learning about light sources and applications in technology and nature. Hands-on activities, problem based learning projects and demonstrations are used to illustrate concepts. (The online courses use “home labs” for this purpose.) Algebra and some trigonometry will be used. This course is equivalent to PHY* K103 - Introduction to Light and Lasers . One 3 hour lecture; one 2 hour lab.
