Optics is a branch of physics that deals with the determination of behaviour and the properties of light, along with its interactions with the matter and also with the instruments which are used to detect it. Optics, in a simple manner, is used to describe the behaviour of visible light, infrared light, and the ultraviolet. Photonics is the physical science of light (photon) generation, detection, and manipulation through emission, transmission, modulation, signal processing, switching, amplification, and sensing. Under this topic, we will study about light phenomenons-Interference, Diffraction and Polarization and about Lasers, holography and fibre-optics.
