Revision as of 07:52, 12 December 2014

This course is a topical survey of research methodologies that in the Spring 2015 term are drawn primarily from optical physics, but are broadly applicable for graduate students who are engaged in doctoral level research in the physical sciences and engineering. With the objective of providing useful tools and a perspective on how advanced scientific research is conducted, we will cover three topics:

  • Python for data analysis, instrument control, and image processing (Kielkopf)
  • Lasers (Mendes)
  • Ultrafast optics (Smadici)

Course materials are here:


This is a required course for students in the doctoral program in Physics & Astronomy.
