Waves - Module Overview

This module covers work on imaging using X-rays, ultrasound waves and visible light.  The work extends to cover ideas of refraction and lenses, including the human eye.  The use of waves for communication, using TIR in optical fibres is also covered.  Details of the content and teaching order can be seen below.
