Optics in general physics for high engineering education
Author(s): Nikolai M. Kozhevnikov; V. F. Masterov; Yu. I. Ukhanov

Paper Abstract

Optics in general physics courses is intended for optical mentality formation providing for the army of engineers to understand and realize the modem optics possibilities. Optics education improvement depends on deep modernization of the experimental basis of physics courses. To protect these courses from superfluous theorizing experimental lectures could be inculcated in teaching. For example a cycle of demonstration experiments on polarization properties of birefringent plates is briefly described in the paper. The experimental device for the fundamentals of holography demonstration is also presented in the paper showing the ways of contemporary optical techniques teaching and training.
