The goal 1) Recognize physical processes which are consequence of light - matter interaction and description of possibilities for their application. 2) Understanding how work some optoelectronic devices. 3) Demonstration of basic optoelectronic processes via experiment and teach students how to use optoelectronic components and tools.
The outcome It is expected that every student: 1) learns about important role of optoelectronics in future development of society, 2) gains knowledge about basic optical processes and optoelectronic devices and 3) overcome all difficulties when practically uses optoelectronics devices and tools and should be ready to use them alone.
