Electromagnetism and Optics (2301NSC)

This course is divided into two components, each in turn is subdivided into two modules. The first component is basic electromagnetism: the laws of electrostatics, magnetostatics and electromagnetism are generated from experimental observations leading to the derivation of Maxwell's equations in both vacuum and media. The propagation of electromagnetic waves in various media is studied. This component consists of two modules: Electrostatics and Magnetostatics&Time-varying fields. The second component of the course gives a general coverage of physical optics, introduction to light as an electromagnetic wave, the properties of such waves and their interaction with material media. This treatment is developed to cover the behaviour of light at interfaces (reflection and refraction, Fresnel equations), interference, coherence properties of light, diffraction, Fourier optics and image formation. The optics component consists of two modules: Optical propagation and Interference and Diffraction. Prerequisites: 1031SCG Physics 1A; 1032SCG Physics 1B; 1011SCG Mathematics IA AND 1012SCG Mathematics IB. Concurrent Assumed: 2203NSC Mathematics 2A.
