In recent years optical systems have become the centrepiece of many applications in science, engineering and commerce; ranging from optical communications to fibre sensors, holography to 3DTV, spectroscopy of materials to laser welding and cutting, and from precision measurement to laser surgery, to name but a few. The course offers students an overview of the concepts of modern optics, optical systems and sensing applications. A major part involves an introduction to lasers, their operation and incorporation into systems design. A case study approach is adopted to describe a range of sensing and system applications in industry, science and commerce.
