This class is a first-year course in Linear Systems and Fourier Optics as part of the graduate program in Optical Science and Engineering at the University of Arizona. The course covers linear systems theory, Fourier transforms, diffraction, and Fourier optics all from the perspective of propagating electromagnetic fields. The courses uses two textbooks, "Linear Systems, Fourier Transforms, and Optics," by Jack D. Gaskill (Chapters 1 - 9), and "Fourier Optics, 1st Edition," by J. W. Goodman (chapters 4 - 6).

Optics Student ,

GREAT Lectures!!!

My first Optics class was at the graduate level as a basis for future remote sensing endeavors. Needless to say, I wasn't prepared. While I used a textbook by Pedrotti for my Geometric optics, this lecture gave me a great understanding of wave optics. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in Optics whose already taken a Fourier class. This professor's teaching methods and associated course notes are amazing.

Make it a course please

This collection is great for optics students, but please make it a iTunes U Course~
