Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to comprehend the materials presented in the lecture and to draw conclusions from them, as well as to actively communicate the contents presented during the lecture.

Subject of course

Electromagnetic waves in matter; geometrical optics; interference and diffraction; optical instruments

Teaching methods

Presentation of the lecture content and discussion. In addition, there are lecture room experiments to support the theoretical concepts. Once a week there are practical numerical exercises ("Übungen") in groups under the supervision of tutors and heads of groups.

The Vice-Rector of TU Wien has ordered that in the summer-term 2020 (from about mid of March 2020) there is not any furhter possibility of having standard lectures (Präsenzlehre) at our University. Instead lectures have to switch to so-called distant learning. This means, the content of this lecture will be presented via PowerPoint presentations together with audio comments. In addition, further documents will be provided via TISS/TUWEL. Possibilities for discussions via TUWEL will be arranged at those dates, where the lecture would have been held in the Institute building "Freihaus" (Mo, Tue, Wed., 10:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.). We start at May 11, 2020.
