OSE6455C - Photonics Laboratory

Experimental study of photonic devices and systems including liquid crystal displays, fiber-optic sensors, laser diodes, electro-optic modulation, acousto-optic modulation, lightwave detection, optical communications, and photonic signal processing

The goal of this course is help the students relate what they have learned in classroom to what they can see in the lab of a variety topics related to photonics. In addition, it will take away the “fear factor” by providing experience of operating various equipment. The students will learn to establish good practices in experimentation including keeping a lab notebook, keeping the experiment station clean and to write lab reports of journal-manuscript quality/style.

Pre-requisites:  Graduate Standing, OSE 6349 Quantum Mechanics or PHY 5606 Physics Quantum Mechanics , and OSE 6111 Optical Wave Propagation or PHY 5346 Electrodynamics I or OSE 6525 Laser Engineering
