From Event: SPIE Optical Engineering + Applications, 2016
The optical engineering program at Rose-Hulman recently developed a course titled “Optomechanics and Optical Engineering Lab.” This course focuses on the design, assembly, and alignment of benchtop optical systems in an effort to expose students to the synthesis of concepts from the areas of geometrical optics, physical optics, photonic devices, and optomechanics. Minimal guidance is provided to the students regarding procedure – students must devise their own methodology and data collection/analysis plan. We present results from the implementation of this new course and details on the projects that the students carry out in the areas of spectroscopy, interferometry, photonics, and imaging.
