Brief description:

This summer camp includes lectures and labs devoted optical imaging theory and basic principles of image processing. Projects are includes optical image modeling and optical image processing in C++ programming language.

Key modules:

  • Basics of electromagnetic theory. Maxwell’s equations and the wave equation. Imaging theory. Diffraction.
  • Mathematical description and algorithms of image forming at coherent, incoherent and partial coherent illumination.
  • Image quality parameters. Aberrations. PSF. MTF.
  • The simulation of the image formation in coherent, incoherent and partially coherent light.
  • Modeling of the influence of various factors on the optical image and its quality.
  • Digital optical image registration and coding. Basics digital image processing.
  • Geometrical, arithmetic and logical image transformations. Image filtering and image recovery.


As a result you will know more about optical image formation and processing, understand how aberration influence into optical image quality and how you can improve optical image quality, and have experience in creating optical image software by your own.

The certificate showing the number of earned ECTS credits.
