Teaching & PhD




General physics : thermodynamics

Give the student the basic notions that will allow him or her to have a better understanding of physical phenomena, such as the mechanic of point masses. Acquire the capacity to analyse quantitatively the consequences of these effects with appropriate theoretical tools.

Optics II

Introduction to the basic concepts of classical and modern optics. The course provides the students with tools for understanding and analysing optical phenomena and designing various optical systems.
