MICRO-567

Lecturer(s) :

Psaltis Demetri

Language:

English

Summary

Give a tool for the treatment of electromagnetic wave propagation in linear and nonlinear media.

Content

1. From Maxwell's equation to beam propagation methods (BPM)

2.  Near field. Propagation of plane waves, Gaussian beams, periodic structures and non-diffracting beams.

3. Relationship to classical diffraction integrals (Fresnel, Fraunhofer, Sommerfeld (paraxial / non paraxial BPM))

4. Thin transparencies, lenses, imaging

5. Imaging systems, Point Spread Function (PSF)

6. Optical resolution, confocal and superresolution microscopy techniques. Rotating beams, vortices, helical beams

7. Waveguides

8. Optical fibers

9. Phase conjugation, holography

10. Volume holograms / grating

11. Nonlinear Optics and nonlinear BPM
