Vibration Control for Optomechanical Systems

An elective course in the Certificate Program In Optical Engineering and Optical Instrument Design.

Course Description

The course will discuss ways in which vibration may affect optical performance, as well as methods and means of reducing this impact. Principal methods of vibration control, such as damping and isolation will be discussed using mathematical models and real life examples. Vibration measurements and environmental standards will be presented as applicable to optomechanical systems. State-of-the art vibration control systems will be reviewed, including pneumatic and elastomeric isolators, damping treatments and active control systems.

Prerequisite: Introductory College level Mathematics and Physics including basic calculus, complex variables and Mechanics. See enrollment confirmation for login information.
