Optical Metrology

Teaching –  Optical Metrology – Prof. Dr.-Ing Philipp Huke


Sommersemester 2021


 Bachelor EP:

Lecture Management

Basic Lab Course, Advanced Laboratories II

Master EP:

Lecture Engineering Scientific Instruments:


Relevant scientific questions often require large scientific facilities like CERN or the ELT to conduct their experiment. The evolution of a scientific project from a question to a real experiment is a complex process between large teams of engineers and scientists. In this course students will learn:

a. How to derive specification from a scientific questions;
b. Translate these specifications to engineering
c. Develop first simulations of the experiment
d. Develop the physical design of an instrument including
d.1. Trade-off studies
d.2. Management tools for the communication
d.3. Engineering tools for the instrument
e. Create a model of the instrument
f. Conduct the experiment in the virtual environment
Example project(s) from astrophysics
