ENGN 2911J - Computational Electromagnetics
This course will introduce numerical techniques for solving practical and theoretical problems in optical science. Using MatLab and Mathematica, students will develop a toolkit for physical optics and build an intuition for wave propagation (e.g. transfer matrices), Fourier optics (beam propagation methods, normal mode analysis), light emission/absorption (surface- and cavity-enhanced lifetimes) as well as general finite difference schemes (frequency and time domain). Prerequisites: ENGN 0510 or PHYS 0470; APMA 0330 or APMA 0350; MATH 0520 or MATH 0540; or equivalent courses.
