Course: Practicals in Optics

Department/Abbreviation: OPT/FP4

Year: 2020

Guarantee: 'Mgr. Radek Čelechovský, Ph.D.'

Annotation: The course focuses on the experimental validation and demonstration of basic physical principles of optics. The aim of the course is to acquire basic experimental skills, learn how to use basic optical instruments and understand the methods used for the measurement of optical devices or to test the basic physical principles.
