Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This is an introductory course to the field of photonics.
List of topics: 1) Light as an electromagnetic wave (Maxwell's equations)
2) plane waves in matter (crystal optics)
3) interference of optical fields, coherence
4) nonlinear optics (up/down-conversion, electrooptics, photorefraction)
5) photonic crystals
6) optical transitions, emission, optical amplification
7) optical oscillator.
Basic knowledge in solid state physics required. Closely along the lines of Photonik (in German) by G.A. Reider (s. literature) and Saleh/Teich (Fundamentals of photonics)
