Course No.: 011002

Course Category: major course of subject

Period/Credits: 32/2

Prerequisite: Advance Mathematics, Complex Function Foundation, Mathematical Statistics, College Physics, Applied Optics, Physical Optics, Optical Fiber Technology, Electromagnetic Field Theory, Laser Principle, Semiconductor Technology, and so on.  

Aim & Requirement:

The course is the major course for all students for PhD degree in optical engineering. It is necessary for the students who want to learn the related knowledge of Photonics. The main objects are the students whose majors are optical engineering, also the students whose major are optical engineering can choose this course. Through the course students can get the general knowledge in Photonics. This course provides a blend of photonic fundamentals and applications to the fast-moving technology involved in optical communication systems and devices. Photonics is becoming increasingly important as limitations of speed, size and bandwidth affect many electronic devices and systems. Here the fundamentals of waves and their interactions with structures and materials are combined with the application of these effects to lasers, other electro-optical devices, and optical systems and networks. The course covers optical wave properties; fiber and integrated optics with applications to optical communications; lasers and their operation and uses; selected optical devices; an introduction to optical signal processing; and selected reviews of emerging photonic technologies including optical networks and architectures.
