PS 165.1: Optics, Laboratory

Course Number and Title: PS 165.1 (Optics, Laboratory)
Date Revised: Oct. 8, 2010
Number of Units: 1
Prerequisites: PS 171

Course Description:
This laboratory course compliments the concepts discussed in PS 165. It includes experiments on reflection, refraction, total internal reflection, as well as selected experiments in geometric optics such as dispersion and image formation using mirrors and lenses, and experiments in physical optics such as Fraunhauffer and Fresnel diffraction patterns and interference.
