Further Information


The lecture provides an overview of current technologies and trends in optical metrology and image processing and their industrial application. In addition, the basics of optics and optical measuring methods will be theoretically worked through and deepened in practice-oriented exercises as well as examples for the use of the systems in manufacturing will be given. With a laboratory exercise at the end of the lecture series, the measuring methods will be demonstrated in practical use and the acquired knowledge will be deepened.
