Imaging optics

Introduction to 0ptical imaging systems such as camera objectives and microscopes. Discussion of imaging formation. Principles of design of imaging optics with geometrical optics and analysis with raytracing. Presentation of different applications in photography and microscopy.

Deep learning for optical imaging

This course will focus on the practical implementation of artificial neural networks (ANN) using the open-source TensorFlow machine learning library developed by Google for Python.

Optical Computing

In this course we will start with a brief history of optical computing, describe methods for implementing optical interconnection and logic and then spend most of our time on learning about the recent efforts in optical computing machines for machine learning.
