Optical Metrology Ruhr-Universität Bochum
Optical metrology is used as cross-sectional technology in many disciplines. At first, the basic characteristics of light and its interaction with matter are pointed out in a short fundamental chapter. Subsequently, the tools of optical metrology, i.e. active and passive optical elements are discussed. The main part of the lecture deals with measuring techniques like: geometry measurements, profilometry, shape measurements, spectroscopy, highspeed cameras, infrared imaging, and biophotonics.
The students understand the physical functional principles of optical metrology. They have learned the characteristics and limits of optical metrology. Furthermore, they got to know the selection criteria of suitable optical measuring techniques for a given application.
