Optical Design in Multiscale Photonic System

  • Course Type: Graduate Course
  • Semester Offered: Fall
Dynamically Dated: 
September 26 - December 7, 2016
Course Number: 
OPTI 526
Units: 
2
Distance Course: 
Yes
Course Description: 
Modern complex optical system consists of subsystems whose characteristic length scale extends from nanometer to macroscopic range. Future optical engineers are required to design, analyze and characterize such multiscale optical system by using appropriate theory, framework and modalities. This course provides students opportunities to understand basic theories and procedures to design and analyze multiscale and nanophotonic optical system such as nanoaperture scanning microscope, solar concentrator optical system with textured solar cells and holographic data storage employing volume grating as well as complex lens system. In the first part of the class, we emphasize understanding basic theory. In the second part of the class, critical reviewing of relevant papers and design project will be assigned.

Course Syllabus: 
Academic Integrity

According to the Arizona Code of Academic Integrity, “Integrity is expected of every student in all academic work. The guiding principle of academic integrity is that a student’s submitted work must be the student’s own.” Unless otherwise noted by the instructor, work for all assignments in this course must be conducted independently by each student. Co-authored work of any kind is unacceptable. Misappropriation of exams before or after they are given will be considered academics misconduct.

Misconduct of any kind will be prosecuted and may result in any or all of the following:

  • Reduction of grade
  • Failing grade
  • Referral to the Dean of Students for consideration of additional penalty, i.e., notation on a student’s transcript re: academic integrity violation, etc.
Students with Learning Disabilities

If a student is registered with the Disability Resource Center, he/she must submit appropriate documentation to the instructor if he/she is requesting reasonable accommodations.

The information contained in this syllabus may be subject to change with reasonable advance notice, as deemed appropriate by the instructor.
