ECE 642 - Optics for Optoelectronics

Covers the electromagnetic applications of Maxwell’s equations in photonic devices such as the dielectric waveguide, fiber optic waveguide and Bragg optical scattering devices. Includes the discussion of the exchange of electromagnetic energy between adjacent guides, (i.e., mode coupling). Ends with an introduction to nonlinear optics. Examples of optical nonlinearity include second harmonic generation and soliton waves. (Y)
