The main learning objective is to present the underlying principles of photonics, optoelectronic devices and lightwave technology. Special focus will be given to the applications of these in optical telecommunications in the context of integrated photonics. Students will obtain an understanding of the principles of light (ray optics and wave optics), optical beams, optical waveguides, photonic waveguide devices, optical properties of materials, photonic detectors and light generation, including lasers.
