6505039 Diffractive Optical Elements and Applications 3.0 3
Description Diffractive optical element (DOE) is based on optical wavefront diffraction on a phase profile that is commonly generated by VLSI techniques. DOE's can be applied on conventional optical systems as well as advanced opto-electronic systems. In this course, we will discuss in detail the basic pricioples, design methods, and others about DOE's. The following topics will be introduced: (1)Introduction to Diffraction theory (2)Overview of Fourier optics (3)Diffractive optical elements (DOE's) (4)Performance evaluation of DOE's (5)Design methods for DOE's (6)Applications of DOE's (7)Fabrication tecjniqies of DOE's
