Course description and aims

The course provides an overview of optoelectronics, particularly optical fiber communications, and deals with both the function of related components and with system performances.
Basic architectures and designs of optical communication systems can be understood.
In addition, operating principles of optical waveguides, optical fibers, semiconductor lasers, photodetectors, optical amplifiers other components, can be acquired.
Students also learn properties of optical fibers and their transmission bandwidth.
Moreover, knowledge of signal multiplexing and advanced technologies of photonic integration devices are given. In addition, the course provides the knowledge of optical interconnects in data center networks.

The knowledges of optoelectronics are based on fundamentals of semiconductor materials, electromagnetic field analysis for optical fiber properties, and simulations using frequency-domain transfer functions for fiber transmission. It is useful to learn Class "Optoelectronics" to acquire the application of the fundamental knowledges of electronics.

Student learning outcomes

Students can acquire the fundamental skills of wide ranges of the optical fiber communication technologies as follows;

(1) To learn various kinds of optical fiber communication systems

Class flow

At the beginning of each class, answers of the practice in the latest class are explained. Next, contents of the class are lectured. Toward the end of the class, the time for the practice is given to students.
Before classes, the texts are uploaded on OCW-i web site. Students should download them, and read them briefly. After classes, they are requested to read the texts for understand the contennts of the classes.
