Photonics for mechanical engineering in tertiary education

Paper Abstract

Photonics has emerged as multidisciplinary technology of the future. Hence photonics has become an important course to be reckoned with in all disciplines of technology. We have developed a new basic and advanced lecture and laboratory course on optics, lasers, interferometry and fiber optics for mechanical engineers. This course is the primary senior level experimental physics course with emphasis on practical experience with necessary theoretical knowledge. The course is structured to cover the relevant topics in photonics, from wave nature of light to ultra short pulse generation, types of lasers and various applications.
