  • Source modeling; partially coherent, broadband, pulsed fields 
  • Field tracing concepts and models 
  • Physical optics effects; polarization, coherence, shifts 
  • Diffractive optics at short wavelengths 
  • Subwavelength structures, metamaterials, and plasmonics 
  • Photometric and radiometric detectors in physical optics  
  • Diffraction gratings 
  • Diffractive- and meta-lenses 
  • Light shaping; DOE, diffuser, freeform 
  • Virtual and augmented reality 
  • Industrial and commercial applications
