Optical Information Science
Teachers KONDO, Naoki Year 3　I/III [Department of Information Science Correspondence Course, Faculty of Science and Engineering] Special Subjects テキスト授業 Elective　2credit 4D305

#### Course Description

Students will learn the followings in this course,
(1) Fourier optics which is suited to treat light as waves with phase
(2) Basics of optical information processing founded upon Fourier optics
(3) Fundamental mechanics of holography.

#### Course Objectives

In this course we shall learn the basics of optical information processing and aim to reach the understanding of the mechanics of holography, which is one of the most powerful 3D imaging modality.

You will be graded by the submitted reports (total 50%) and final examination marks (50%). Reports are returned with comments within 2 weeks after submission.
