- The learning activities and methodology are based on:
Magistral classes were the basic and fundamental concepts of the course will be included. The students will handle material used during the regular classes, and they will hace access to one Text-book of reference.
Practical Classes, to motivate the students to solve practical examples and exercices. This will allow the students to evaluate the level of comprehension of the concepts of the course.
Laboratory Exercices and Practices, where the students will study the working principles of light emitters as LEDs and diode lasers as well as PIN and APDs photodiodes as light detectors in Laboratory practices. These laboratory practices will be complemented by studying the speed and bandwidth of these devices. These Practices will be done by using the LTSpice circuit simulator, where the Students will be developing equivalent models of the Diode Lasers for a better understanding of its operation and performances through a large signal equivalent circuit of a Semicondutor Laser, in order to analyse the optical absorption, the spontaneous emisión, the stimulated emission and the amplification in a Diode Laser. And with a small signal equivalent circuit of a Semiconductor Laser to study the frequency response of a Diode Laser, by obtaining the maximum modulation frequency.
Finally, through a Final Work of the course, the Study of Different Applications of Photonics as they are having actually a great Future following the work doing now in the Fiber Optical Communications, the Free Space Optical Communications and the Laser Satellite Communications, the Local Area Optical Communications (LANs), and the multiple Applications that are having now the LIDAR (Laser Imaging Detection and Ranging) Systems, as well as the multiple Biomedical Applications as the Diagnostic and Therapy of Cancer and the Medical Applications as Cardiovascular deseases.
