(10/27/2021-12/21/2021)

Course Memo

This course is aimed for the first year master students, and provides an overview of the main physical principles of photonics and photonic devices. The emphasis is made on the demonstration that the light matter interaction in photonic devices can be modified by means of the modern technology. The course give the illustration how the basic physical laws help to get qualitative understanding of different branches of photonics such as light emission, transmission and detection. This introductory course is designed for both theoreticians and experimentalists.
