No prior knowledge is required to enjoy this journey into the fascinating world of light. With my university level training in physics, my 15+ years experience in tutoring and my graphical tablet to produce sketches supporting my explanations, I will be able to get everything across in a clear manner as we do our Skype lesson. I will pick you up where you are, that's a promise. The lessons are loosely based on my book "Light and Radiation Basics".
- Electromagnetic Waves
- Speed of Light
- Wavelength & Color
- Generation of Light (Bremsstrahlung, Electron Transitions, Fusion)
- Propagation of Light (Inverse Square Law, Attenuation, Random Walk)
- Refraction & Mirages
- Light Pressure
- Gravitational Deflection & Einstein Rings
- Olbers' Paradox
The Physics of Light
Basic Gig = 10 min lesson.
Yes, you can. Though we will encounter a few formulas, I will explain and demonstrate everything you need to know to understand light and optical phenomena.
