Summary

This course proposes a selection of different facets of modern optics and photonics.

Content

Keywords

Maxwell's equations, optics, photonics, polarization, material constants, dispersion, light scattering, Mie scattering, plasmonics, gratings, photonic crystals, metamaterials, metasurfaces.

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

General knowledge of fundamental optics, e.g. courses Ingénierie Optique

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Analyze an optics problem
  • Develop a model for this problem
  • Synthesize the properties of different fundamental optical phenomena
  • Elaborate a deep understanding of the underlying phenomena
  • Model an optics problem using Matlab
  • Explore an optical parameter range using Matlab

Transversal skills

  • Assess one's own level of skill acquisition, and plan their on-going learning goals.
  • Set objectives and design an action plan to reach those objectives.
  • Use both general and domain specific IT resources and tools

Teaching methods

Ex-cathedra and exercises on Matlab.
