AbstractClassical and semi-classical introduction to Quantum Electronics. Mandatory for further elective courses in Quantum Electronics. The field of Quantum Electronics describes propagation of light and its interaction with matter. The emphasis is set on linear pulse and beam propagation in dispersive media, optical anisotropic materials, and waveguides and lasers.
ObjectiveTeach the fundamental building blocks in Quantum Electronics.
ContentWave propagation in dispersive materials
Linear pulse propagation
Reflexion and transmission at an interface
Interference and coherence
Fourier optics
Fundamentals of lasers
Linear wave propagation in anisotropic materials
Waveguides and integrated optics
