basic knowledge on optics and solid-state physics
Skills to be acquired in this module

The students get a deeper knowledge in modern applications in the field of optics and electronics, especially at the cross-section of both topics, i.e., optoelectronics.

Several applications of optoelectronic will be taught enabling the students to understand basic optoelectronic devices such as photodiodes, solar cells, CCD cameras or fiber-optical systems. In the first part of the lecture a theoretical background will be enabled while in the second part the understanding is deepened in a laboratory work.
Module contents

Basic knowledge of optics and solid-state physics; Understanding of the working principle of Transistors, LEDs, Solar cells, CCD sensors.

Knowledge about Electro- and acousto-optical manipulation of light, Fiber Optics

In the second part, the accessed knowledge from the lecture is applied in a laboratory project.
