Learning outcomes
Students will familiarize themselves with properties of electromagnetic field in vacuum and in general environments and its description using Maxwell equations. They will gain basic information about the characteristic of electromagnetic field and waves. Next will come selected parts of electromagnetic and wave theory of light. The wave theory basics will be shown from electromagnetic theory of light postulates. At the end of the course students will receive basic information about elemental waves, interference, coherence and the light-matter interactions.
Students will acquire the basic knowledge about properties of electromagnetic field in vacuum and in general environments. The student will be able to describe these properties using Maxwell equations. Further, the student will be able to work with the theory of electromagnetic field and waves. The student will be able to use the electromagnetic optics postulates to get to wave optics. The student will be able to describe elemental waves, interference, coherence and the light-matter interactions.
