Abstract:
This dissertation addresses concepts involved in the design and teaching of optical laboratories at the undergraduate level. Curriculum and lab manuals to carry out experiments for the undergraduate optical labs in the UA Optical Engineering program have been developed. Specific as well as general educational goals are discussed for many of the experiments. Innovative approaches to experiments are given, as well as ideas for future improvements to this lab program. The lab manuals for Sophomore courses in Geometrical Optics and Physical Optics appear in their entirety as Appendices to this dissertation.
