Enrollement in the course requires an successful completion of the following courses:
Physics II (17PBBFY2)
Lecturer:
Jana Urzová (guarantor), Eva Urbánková
Tutor:
Jana Urzová (guarantor), Eva Urbánková
Supervisor:
Department of Natural Sciences
Synopsis:

The course extends the previous courses Physics I. and Physics II. It focuses on phenomena related to waves (mechanic or electromagnetic waves) and their applications in science, technics and medicine. In the first part, acoustics and applications of ultrasound will be presented. The second part describes wave and geometric optics. We will also touch basics of quantum mechanics.

Requirements:

Assessment: active participation on the solution of excercises

Examination: presentation of appropriate theme during the lessons.

Syllabus of lectures:

Waves in general, Fourier analysis

Propagation fo waves, mechanic waves

Basics of acoustics

Acoustics in medicine, ultrasound

Electromagnetic waves - spectrum, properties and applications

Wave optics - interference, diffraction, pollarization

Geometrical optics

Optical devices

Lasers, special parts of optics

Basics of quatum mechanics

Basics of spectroscopy

Syllabus of tutorials:

Exercises will be mingled with lectures.

Study Objective:

The course extends the previous courses Physics I. and Physics II. In this set of courses the main emphasis is placed on the understanding of priciples and the ability to solve standard physical examples. In Physics III. course we study waves, optics and lasers. We concentrate on practical examples and experiments.
