Title: Metrology of Optical Systems
A standards-based course that provides an introduction to measurement and testing techniques used to determine the overall quality of an optical system’s performance. The three instructional modules contained in this course are designed for use by students and instructors involved in the preparation of technicians in the area of precision optics fabrication and photonics. Educators can use this course as an introduction for an AAS program in precision optics fabrication and as an elective in an AAS laser electro-optics program. Corporate trainers can use it in programs designed to retrain or update the skills of engineering technicians who are already employed. This course can also support dual-credit offerings for high school students in STEM career pathways. The National Center for Optics and Photonics Education (OP-TEC) developed this course under NSF ATE Grant Number DUE-1144377. Content specifications were determined from the 2nd Edition of the National Precision Optics Skill Standards for Technicians. Includes modules on: Optical Systems Parameters and Performance Metrics; Non-Interferometric Measurement of Optical Performance; Using Interferometry to Measure Precision Optics.
