i.      Formative

ii.     Summative

SYNOPSIS: Optical metrology is a key component of photonics as it is required in most technology and application involving light. With the advent of lasers, with its highly coherent and monochromatic (purity) properties, more precise and accurate measurements can be made today in terms of speed and time accuracy.
MODE OF DELIVERY: Lecture, Lab Practical, Group Work, Online assignment etc
