Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Collect the basic physical principles and laws of optoelectronics and integrated optics Describe, clarify and interpret the particular natural phenomena in the field of optoelectronics and integrated optics Apply mathematical methods for describing the corresponding phenomena in the field of optoelectronics and integrated optics Illustrate obtained knowledge in solving the practice problems

Teaching methods



The subject is related to the student's knowledge of mathematics, physics and materials. Student gains knowledge in the areas of optoelectronics, dealing with generation, guiding, detection and control of optical radiation. After completing the subject the student will understand the principles and properties of optoelectronic components and capabilities and methods of their use.
