Demonstration polarization phenomenon and laser system simulation by software in university lecture course
Author(s): Bohan Lyu

Paper Abstract

Traditional physics or engineering education mainly describes the photonics phenomenon through complex mathematical formula and calculations, or with diagram to explain the phenomenon. The photonics phenomenon is usually not easy to imagine. Many physical models are relatively complicated for many students. We want to provide a selfdeveloped interactive photonics program by LabVIEW, and demonstrate in the lecture. Students can also download these programs, and observe the simulator by changing the physical parameters. We demonstrate two topics in the university lecture. The first is the phenomenon of polarization, by using software to present the relationship of polarization and Poincare Sphere. Another is diffraction and its application the laser dots projector system. Finally, through the teaching analysis questionnaire, we quantify the degree of understanding of students. This result can be used as the reference for direction of improvement.
