Course description and aims

The students study light propagation, reflection and refraction on the basis of Maxwell equation. The students also study refractive indexes of matters from microscopic and macroscopic points of view. In addition, topics of nonlinear optics, surface plasmons and metamaterials are lectured for understanding nanophotonics.
This lecture is for the students who have studied "Fundamentals of Light and Matter I" or have equivalent knowledge. Students are encouraged to have taken the course "Fundamentals of Light and Matter I".

Student learning outcomes

The students will be able to understand:
(a) light propagation, reflection and refraction on the basis of Maxwell equation.
(b) refractive indexes of matters from microscopic and macroscopic points of view.
(c) nonlinear optics, surface plasmons and metamaterials are lectured for understanding nanophotonics.
