Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand optical imaging in the framework of different theoretical approaches,  in particular matrix optics and diffraction optics based upon Fourier-formalisms.

Subject of course

Optical image processing plays an important role in various technological areas. This series of lectures provides an introduction into the theory of imaging and image processing, including system-theoretical approaches. Contents: Matrix-formalism of geometrical optics: optical imaging components: wave-optical theory of image formation: Fourier-optical treatment of image formation: spatial filtering: holography: pattern recognition: statistical optics.
