Annotation The course is designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of optoelectronic and optical communications. Topics cover waveguide optics, nanophotonics, metamaterials, holography, optical information processing, laser technology and nonlinear optics, atmospheric laser communications, FOTS information multiplexing and computer simulation..
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
The goal of the course is to enable students to develop their knowledge and understanding of optical information processing and management techniques, physical principles of these techniques, development trends and perspectives; and to provide students with an in-depth understanding of optical concepts related to optical information processing and management. Upon course completion, students should be able: to demonstrate their knowledge of optical information processing systems, to carry out qualitative and quantitative analysis of optical systems, to demonstrate their understanding of holography, waveguide optics, nonlinear optics, and laser technology, and to apply the acquired knowledg
