This free online course on the fundamentals of MATLAB and diffractive optics in optical engineering will begin by introducing you to the Python programming language for modeling optical elements along with optical phenomenon. You will learn about the history of Python as a programming language, how Python programs are written, as well as the requirements needed to write any simple program in Python.
This course will also introduce you to the interference between two plane waves as well as how to model this simulation in Python. You will learn about the parameters needed to control interference in Python, the programming style in MATLAB, how MATLAB interprets variables along with the basic operations that are mostly used in codes. This course will teach you how to stimulate interference using MATLAB and the theory of interference in MATLAB.
Finally, this course will introduce you to how diffractive optics affects optical systems. You will learn about the causes of diffraction, how to use diffraction and the limitations of refractive optics in optical engineering. This course will enhance your understanding of the components of the diffraction grating. Start this course and improve your knowledge of Python and MATLAB programming as they relate to optical engineering.Start Course Now
