Abstract
Optics is a Held that deals with sources, components, and detectors. Its practice requires that students be familiar with many techniques from the simple measurement of the radius of curvature of a lens surface with a dial gauge spherometer to the analysis of figure errors of the same surface using a phase-shifting interferometer. In this article we describe the laboratory courses available to students in the Applied Optics program in the School of Physics, which is part of the Center of Optical Science and Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The experiments and projects are intended to provide the student with experiences that will prepare them for work in optics after they graduate.
