Optical Systems Engineering

A required course in the Certificate Program in Optical Engineering.

Examine the fundamentals of systems engineering as applied to the design of optical, infrared, and laser systems; understand requirements analysis, trade studies, error budgets, requirements flowdown, component specifications, and vendor selection. Develop first-order models for the radiometric, optical source, focal plane array, and overall performance of an optical system. Quantify radiometric performance using etendue and stray light analysis. Compare FPA types and properties; predict MTF and SNR performance combining optical, source, and FPA parameters; explore detector-selection specifications and tradeoffs. Examine component fabrication and STOP analysis.
