Integrated Photonics Seminar (Summer Semester 2011)


The goal of this seminar is for the students to cover the most important topics in Integrated Photonics in view of understanding a complete optical communications link. During the seminar, you will be coached by the scientific team of the Integrated Photonics Laboratory to select the relevant literature and to prepare your presentation.

In particular, electro-optic modulators, photodetectors, guided wave optics and electrical signal amplification will be covered. In additional, we will look at noise sources in electro-optical systems, bandwidth limitations and optical dispersion in single mode and multi-mode systems.

The goal of the seminar is for the students to be able to understand and model a complete optical link at the end of the semester.
