AbstractLecture gives comprehensive insight into nano-scale photonic devices, physical fundamentals behind, simulation techniques and an overview of the design and fabrication. Following applications of nano-scale photonic structures are discussed: waveguides, fiber couplers, light sources, modulators and detectors, photovoltaic cells, atomic-level devices, integrated microwave/optical devices.
ObjectiveGeneral training in advanced photonic device design with an overview of simulation, fabrication, and characterization techniques. Hands-on experience with photonic and optoelectronic device modeling and simulation.
Lecture notesThe presentation and the lecture notes will be provided every week.
