Abstract Title: Advanced Optics lab at SJSU
Abstract: We have a three-hour lab and a one hour lecture associated with the optics lab per week. The students do 6-7 experiments and a project towards the end of the semester. These projects give them a reason for learning, understanding and analyzing the fundamentals and experiencing them in action. In their project they build an optical instrument or develop a method to measure an optical parameter. The experiments will be briefly discussed and the projects discussed in some detail.
