Abstract
In our work there is shown one of possible approaches to education of various parts of optics with a mathematical system MATLAB. The work is focused mainly on education of interference and diffraction of light and the diffraction theory of optical imaging. In our laboratories students can simply perform a computer simulation of various problems, which they can meet in practice, e.g. two-beam interferometry, imaging in coherent, partially coherent or incoherent light, diffraction from gratings of different types, etc. The system Matlab can be also used for simulating problems in holography and holographic interferometry of static and dynamic events. Students can further simulate transforming of optical beams through a simple lens or a system of lenses by means of ray tracing. For every described part of optics we have the software programmed in the Matlab system. Matlab seems to be a very good tool for numerical modelling of properties of various optical systems and for teaching optics.
