Photonics (9 ECTS)

Prof. Gabriella Cincotti

The course provides students with the basic knowledge of light generation, detection and propagation in free space and through guiding media. Starting from the fundamentals of geometrical, paraxial and quantum optics, the main features of passive and active photonic devices are analysed; such as spectrometers, interferometers, optical fibers, lasers, LED, photodetectors,… evidencing for each of them the performances and the critical issues.
