Course Information

Optoelectronics merges optics and microelectronics. Optoelectronic devices and circuits have become core technologies for several key technical areas such as telecommunications, information processing, optical storage, and sensors. This course will cover devices that generate (semiconductor light emitting diodes and lasers), modulate, amplify, switch, and detect optical signals. Also included are solar cells, photonic crystals, and plasmonics
