Teaching and Research Labs

Electro-Optics Laboratory

The E-O Laboratory is primarily a teaching laboratory, divided into two main areas: fibre optics and Fourier optics. Complete sets of fibre-optics teaching kits are available to familiarise students with the basic aspects of fibre transmission, splicing, and optical modulation, as well as detection. Holographic teaching kits are also in place to allow students to learn the basic principles of holography and make their own holograms. Experiments in modern optical techniques, such as optical signal processing, Fourier transforms and filtering are also part of the E-O Laboratory.
