Main event ERN 2023 -UA-Workshop-“Optics workshop: from augmented reality to optical communications”

Optics workshop: from augmented reality to optical communications.

Schedule, Workshop

A workshop consisting of four different activities: an experiment to observe how simple optical systems made up of two lenses (telescopes, cameras, human eye, etc.) work;  another to see how light can be polarised and why this is useful in 3D imaging; a third activity to explain the basics of augmented reality and holography; and finally an experiment to measure the width of a hair using light diffraction, proving that light is a wave.
