**Research Subject: Physical Optics**
This summer research program is a summary of several topics in optics. In this program, students will be introduced to the current research topics, including nonlinear optics, quantum optics, and computational optics. We will build an interferometer and get to experience cool experimental aspect in optics. A few
mini-projects will be given to help understanding the material. Upon completion of this program, students should have comprehensive knowledge about the field of optics.
**科研计划摘录** **Session 1**: Quantum Technology Overview Task 1: Overview of what we can do with quantum enhanced technology. Topics include quantum teleportation, quantum entanglement, quantum communication, and others.
**Session 2**: Fundamental of Quantum Mechanics, an Introduction Task 2: Learn some basic concepts of quantum mechanics. Topics include Schrödinger and Heisenberg picture of quantum mechanics, Dirac notation, etc. Further reading: Griffiths “Introduction to quantum mechanics” Section 3.6 Quantum Physics of Atoms, Molecules, Solids, Nuclei, and Particles Introduction to Quantum Mechanics by Bransden and Joachain MIT opencourseware 6.453 ………… **Session 6**: Fourier Optics and propagation of light (mini project) ………… **Session 8**: Holograph, phase retravel and 3D imaging (mini project) Task 8: Learn several 3D imaging methods (recover the phase of the wave). We will do simulation and process the real image data using MATLAB. …………
