Course Instructor
SC1278:
This course explains basic principles of design, testing and applications of freeform optics. Examples are taken from recent publications on the topic. Anyone who wants to answer questions such as, "what are freeform optics and their benefits?”, "how do I design them?", and “should I even consider freeform optics?” will benefit from taking this course.
