## EE 12Q: Science, Technology, Art

This course presents the interwoven histories of science, technology, and art starting in the late Medieval period in Europe, through the Renaissance, up to the Modern era. It explores how advances in science and technology were exploited by artists and how problems confronted by artists were often solved by scientists and technologists, to the advancement of all. Topics include the geometry of perspective, optics of image making, chemistry of pigments and dyes, and the role of computing in art. A subsidiary theme is how artists indirectly interpreted scientific discoveries (telescope views of the heavens, microscope views of the teeny, Theory of Relativity, ...). Whenever possible, the technical evidence, developments, and of course art will be presented visually in the class.

## EE 65: Modern Physics for Engineers (ENGR 65)

This course introduces the core ideas of modern physics that enable applications ranging from solar energy and efficient lighting to the modern electronic and optical devices and nanotechnologies that sense, process, store, communicate and display all our information.

Topics include the quantum mechanics of electrons and photons (Schrödinger's equation, atoms, electrons, energy levels and energy bands; absorption and emission of photons; quantum confinement in nanostructures), the statistical mechanics of particles (entropy, the Boltzmann factor, thermal distributions), the thermodynamics of light (thermal radiation, limits to light concentration, spontaneous and stimulated emission), and the physics of information (Maxwell's demon, reversibility, entropy and noise in physics and information theory).
