- Enrollement in the course requires an successful completion of the following courses:
- Physics II (17PBBFY2)
- Eva Urbánková
- Eva Urbánková
- Department of Natural Sciences
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.
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
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.
