ECE 5134G - Advanced Fiber Optics and Applications (3C)
Theory of optical fiber waveguide propagation and design applications in communication and sensing systems.
Why take this course?
The course introduces students to the basic building blocks of optical fiber technology. These include the types and properties of fibers, optical sources and detectors, and fiber components and devices. These building blocks are introduced in the context of long distance fiber optical transmission systems which push the technology to its limits. The material is necessary for advanced study of optical communications and the skills acquired in this course are fundamental for employment in the rapidly growing fiber optics industry.
