Course Aim
To give the student a frame work to address specific problems in optics using numerical tools.

Contents
Applications within optics using different approximations of Maxwell´s equations will be covered with a specific focus on numerical methods and digital optics. Examples include geometrical optics and ray-tracing, Physical and statistical optics inluding spectral methods, near-field optics, scattering, speckles and the phase determination, optical fibres, quasi-classical detection of light. Inverse problems will also be covered.

Realization
Lectures, computer exercises and a project. The focus will be on individual work on the computer exercises and the project.

Examination
Hand-in problems and project presentation both written and orally.

Remarks
The course is given in English if reguested.

Examiner
Mikael Sjödahl
