PHYS 432 - PHOTONICS
Photonics is the branch of physics that deals with the generation, transmission and detection of light (applications and properties). This course focuses on the physical concepts behind the latest innovations in photonics. It first explores propagation of light in optical fibers addressing the notions of loss, dispersion and polarization. Then, it explores semiconductor technology and covers the fundamentals of photon emissions and detection (i.e., what are the different types of lasers and photodetectors available, how they work, what are their properties). Optical amplification is also studied. Finally, performance issues related to non-linear effects are introduced.
