Withdrawal: It is not allowed to withdraw from this subject after the registration deadline.


Summary

This course gives an introduction to basic integrated photonics components that are at the core of photonic nanotechnologies today. The course combines theoretical description with practical lab work where students will do simulations in CST Microwave Studio.

Content

Keywords

integrated photonics, waveguides, on-chip, wave optics

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

This course requires familiarity with Maxwell's equations and electromagnetism.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Explain the working principles of the above components.
  • Analyze the simulation results.
  • Argue the observed trends of the performed simulations, e.g. dependence on refractive index, wavelength, angle.
  • Decide which material system to use for a given component.

Teaching methods

2 hours of class + 2 hours of simulation work each week. The exercise classes will treat in detail the components treated in class, with problem sets and simulations.

Exercise sheets will be given every other week (7 sheets in total). Solutions will be handed out.

Assessment methods

The course grading is based on a final oral exam which counts for 50% of the grade. All exercise sheets will be collected and they count for 50% of the grade.
