+ Knowledge and understanding that provide a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and / or applying ideas, often in a research context.
+ That the students can apply their knowledge and ability to solve problems in new or unfamiliar in wider or multidisciplinary environments related to their field of study.
+ That the students can integrate their knowledge, as well as handle the complexity of making judgements from an incomplete or limited information, but which could include reflections about the social and ethic responsibilities that could be linked to the application of their judgements and knowledge.
+ That the students possess learning skills that allow them following their long-life learning in a self-conducted and self-sufficient way.
General skills ...
+ Ability to propose, design, implement and maintain a system with photonic components for a specific application.
Specific Skills ...
+ Identify the different blocks which are present in a system where photonics plays an essential role, the specificities of its design, possible subsystems to be used, its integration and its final verification.
+ Handling of tools aiming to design photonic devices and systems.
+ To be aware of the current trends in different applications of photonic technologies and learned experiences from real cases.
+ Capacity of selecting novel photonic components, technologies and subsystems.
+ Capacity of designing photonic devices, passive and active, and of evaluating its performance.
+ Capacity of effectively searching information, as well of identifying the state of the art in a technological problem in the field of photonic devices and systems.
Upon finishing he course, the students must be able to:
+ To apply the appropriate analysis tools to determine the performance of photonics devices as a part of complex systems.
+ To describe the development techniques and applications of advanced lasers and their limitations and differences between commercial lasers, choosing the most suitable type of laser for a specific application.
+ To define and apply the design rules of complex semiconductor-based laser structures required to obtain devices with unique performance, showing their potential applications.
