      ESPB 9.0 Status elective
      Condition no, desirable prerequisites are passed exams: Optoelectronics and Optical Networks.
      The goal Introducing students to: 1) modern photonic components and systems, 2) technological methods for its production, 3) models for its analysis and optimization.
      The outcome It is expected that students: 1) understand how modern photonic components and system works, 2) learned techniques used for simulation and modeling of these components and systems, 3) be ready to simulate and optimize given component or system, alone.
      Contents of lectures Noncoherent and coherent sources-lasers, detectors and optical materials. Integrated optical components. High speed photonic components: optical and semiconducting modulators, optical amplifiers, especially design detectors and OEIC. Special photonic components: LCD, optical filters, OLED, polymer sources and detectors. Complex communications all-optical systems.
