Practical works in the speckle optics for the subspecialties: physics of laser measurements and biomedical optics

Paper Abstract

The paper describes two practical works in Optics Laboratory of undergraduates to whom the courses on Statistical Optics, Diffraction Methods in Biomedicine and Physical Principles of Laser Measurements are taught. The first work belongs to a training course on Numerical Methods and Computing. Through it the undergraduates can analyze the regularities of speckles forming at coherent beams scattering in random media. The set of educational training software enables students to model the process of strongly focused Gaussian beams and focuses speckle fields scattering from moving phase screen and to investigate the statistical characteristics of scattered field. Another practical work, designed on the base of two-coordinate robot with aerodynamic suspension and a linear pitch drive, is a scanning laser profilometer used for an analysis of the first and second order statistics of statistically inhomogeneous speckles and for examining the profilometer's output signal as well.
