Optical Physics: The Fundamentals

Duration: 3 hours

Light is a complex natural phenomenon. From a mathematical perspective, the behaviour of light is similar to the behaviour of waves, which has important implications for our understanding of the world. In this course, you'll learn about the three most important wave-like behaviours of light: reflection, refraction and diffraction. Includes material on the various types of mirrors and lenses.
