Fundamentals of electromagnetic fields

Learning outcomes
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The course enables students to know and understand the advanced concepts of optoelectronics and optoelectronic components. The student will be able to understand and know innovative technical design and analysis of components and integrated optical circuits and optical fiber, thus obtaining knowledge across the spectrum.
CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
Graduates will have the ability to apply the advanced theory, concerning the optical components and devices, to analytical problems and synthesis of circuits and systems in optical fiber and integrated optics with a look to the emerging areas such as nanotechnology.
TRANSVERSAL SKILLS:
The course is structured in order to provide relevant links with the new emerging scientific disciplines, seeking to boost the learning ability of students. This will improve the student's ability to evaluate and know how to apply emerging technologies in the project area. The course provides to the students the tools to work together with interdisciplinary groups.

Program
General properties of the guided propagation at optical frequencies. Propagation in planar dielectric waveguides. Propagation in optical fibers. Attenuation and dispersion. Propagation in anisotropic materials. Semiconductor laser. LED and optical amplifiers. Introduction to nanostructured materials. Carbon nanotubes and graphene. Microscopy for optoelectronic and biological applications

Development of the examination
LEARNING EVALUATION METHODS
Oral text

LEARNING EVALUATION CRITERIA
The student must demonstrate mastery of the concepts introduced in the course. In particular, the student must demonstrate that he/she is are able to introduce, to derive, to argue, show and to link relationships and theories related to the topics of the course

LEARNING MEASUREMENT CRITERIA
The exam is performed in order to assess: 1) the efforts made by the student in the preparation, 2) what the student has learned, 3) what he has actually understood, 4) his ability to develop its own considerations and criticisms

FINAL MARK ALLOCATION CRITERIA
The final mark is the results of a weighted evaluation of the learning measurement criteria
