About

Master Optical Design. Design high performance optical systems for a wide range of applications with this Optical Engineering offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Colorado Boulder.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Optical instruments are how we see the world, from corrective eyewear to medical endoscopes to cell phone cameras to orbiting telescopes. This Optical Engineering  offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Colorado Boulder will teach you how to design such optical systems with simple graphical techniques, then transform those pencil and paper designs to include real optical components including lenses, diffraction gratings and prisms. You will learn how to enter these designs into an industry-standard design tool, OpticStudio by Zemax, to analyze and improve performance with powerful automatic optimization methods.

What you will learn

  • Specify an optical system and potential solutions to meet those specs
  • Transform layouts into optical designs including real optical components
  • Analyze you designs in an industry standard optical design code, OpticStudio by Zemax,  to validate and optimize the design
  • be able to design, to first order, such optical systems with simple mathematical and graphical techniques

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • First Order Optical System Design
  • Optical Efficiency and Resolution
  • Design of High-Performance Optical Systems
