Photonics and Light Wave Communications
This course provides a working knowledge of the components comprising fiber-optic networks, which form the backbone of today's communication networks, including the global internet, 4G wireless, home access (e.g., FiOS), and data center networks. The operation of lasers, fiber optics and optical routers will be discussed, as will current applications such as fiber to the home, the broadband wireless-optical interface, all-optical switching, signal processing and computing, and security in fibers. The course provides hands-on lab experience with fiber measurements and splicing, and frequent visits to the fiber optics lab and demonstrations.
