Course Number: 
Distance Course: 
Course Description: 
This course is designed to provide the hands-on experience needed to master the basic concepts and laboratory techniques of optical fiber technology. The projects cover a wide range of applications in both communications and sensors and cover the use of both multimode and single-mode fibers. There will typically be an introductory lecture for each lab and a total of eight lab experiments. Some demonstration experiments will be set up for other topics not formally covered by an assigned lab (such as fiber lasers). The introductory notes and text should provide sufficient background material for the lab experiments as well as a foundation in fiber optics. Also offered as ECE 587L.
