Course objectives
Optics and optometry at MU Faculty of medicine. The main goal of the course is to deepen and stabilise the insight of the students into the physical phenomena underlying the optical problems to be encountered in their profession. After actualisation of the basics of the security of work in a laboratory the students are in this advanced course acquainted with new phenomena rising from the wave nature of light - interference and diffraction -, detection of light and function of spectrometers. The imaging is extended to the case of thick lenses including determination of their parameters. At the end of the semester a collective demonstration of vacuum vapour deposition takes place. Upon passing out the course a set of phenomena which students are personally experienced with is significantly enhanced improving thus the potential of the students to correctly identify them in the practice and thus to correctly corrolary on their characteristics.
  • Processing of the measurement results. Measurement on the resistors. Measurements of the electric power of alternating current. Measurement of the polarisation action of a polaroid and verification of Malus's law for real polaroids. Measurement of microscope parameters. Determination of index of refraction using minimal deviation method. Polarisation plane bending in a solution and its dependence on the solution concentration. Measurement on the dielectric surface reflected light. Focal distance measurement of a thin lens. Refractometric measurement of the index of refraction. Transmission of light through plan-parallel plate and triangular prism.
