3.46 Photonic Materials and Devices

Class Info

Optical materials design for semiconductors, dielectrics and polymers. Ray optics, electromagnetic optics and guided wave optics. Physics of light-matter interactions. Device design principles: LEDs, lasers, photodetectors, modulators, fiber and waveguide interconnects, optical filters, and photonic crystals. Device processing: crystal growth, substrate engineering, thin film deposition, etching and process integration for dielectric, silicon and compound semiconductor materials. Microphotonic integrated circuits. Telecom/datacom systems. Assignments include three design projects that emphasize materials, devices and systems applications. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments.

This class has 3.23 as a prerequisite.

3.46 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by P. Anikeeva.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
