Topics include generation, transformation, modulation and detection of laser beams and their applications. Objective: The course begins with a brief introduction to lasers and fibers and concentrates its attention to their use in communication and other electrical engineering applications. Topics are selected to emphasize the application of prerequisite material in electrophysics and systems areas of modern devices and systems. Text: Fundamentals of Photonics (Wiley Series in Pure and Applied Optics); Bahaa E. A. Saleh (Author), Malvin Carl Teich (Author); Publisher: WileyInterscience; 2 edition (March 9, 2007); Language: English; ISBN10: 0471358320 ISBN13: 9780471358329 Instructor: Alexandra Boltasseva Birck 1295 (Phone: 40301, Purdue login: aeb@purdue.edu) No home telephone calls, please. No information will be given at home telephone.

Any actions that might unfairly improve a student's score on homework, quizzes, or examinations will be considered cheating and will not be tolerated. Examples of cheating include (but are not limited to): Sharing results or other information during an examination. Bringing forbidden material or devices to an examination. Working on an exam before or after the official time allowed. Requesting a regrade of answers or work that has been altered. Submitting homework that is not your own or engaging in forbidden homework collaborations. AB 1 10012011 At the instructor's discretion, cheating on an assignment or examination will result in a reduced score, a zero score, or a failing grade for the course. All occurrences of academic dishonesty will be reported to the Assistant Dean of Students and copied to the ECE Associate Head for Education. If there is any question as to whether a given action might be construed as cheating, please see the instructor before you engage in any such action. Final: Date and room to be announced. Grades: Test 1 100 Test 2 100 Final test 200 Report 100 Homework 80 Instructor options 20 TOTAL 600 Homework: Work should be your own, but general method of working problems may be discussed with others or with the instructor. Answers may be compared. However, identical papers and/or identical wrong answers should be avoided. Show all work, including methods, procedures, etc. An answer without an explanation of how you arrived at the answer will receive ZERO credit. Due at the beginning of the class period, not at the end. No late homework is accepted. No exception. Reports: One literature report will be required. For this you will read one journal article having to do with course topics, and write a short critical review (min 1 max 3 pages, typewritten, 1.5spaced). The article should be technical, from journals such as JOSA B, Optics Letters, Optics Express, Optics Communications, Journal of Modern Optics, IEEE J. of Quantum Electronics, Physical Review, IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics, or IEEE J. Lightwave Technology. You might choose an article from the list of "References" at the end of any chapter in the book. Articles from trade magazines such as Photonics Spectra or Laser Focus World are not acceptable. Please include a photocopy of the article with your report. In your report, you should provide a brief summary and critique of the article. Discuss whether you feel the article is valid, significant, clear and readable. Try to relate what you have read to topics we have discussed in class or read in the text. If you have questions about the article you can include them in your report as well. Your reports will be due on 04/26. AB 2 10012011 ...
