Ziele

After the project the students understand

  • the basic requirements for work in an optical laboratory
  • basic Matlab commands for data analysis (esp. interpolation and Fourier transform)

Furthermore the students are able to apply

  • the gained knowledge of optical experiments concerning the handling and alignment of optics
  • simple data analysis tasks using Matlab

Inhalt

The students receive information material about the fundamental work flow in optical laboratories and data analysis in Matlab. In three experiments the gained knowledge of the students is tested and futhermore applied to two optical setups and some data.

The practical experiments are the alignment of a single mode fiber coupling setup and a Michelson interferometer. In the Matlab experiment data interpolation and Fourier transform are in the focus of the exercise.

Further contents are:
  • Cleaning and Handling of optical components
  • Optic alignment workflow
  • Optomechanical components
  • Basic characteristics of lenses and other optics
  • Coherence and interferference
