Content

Electric/optical waveguides and the effective index method, symmetric and asymmetric slab guides, ray optics approach, losses and gains in waveguide; optical input and output couplers; coupling of modes, directional couplers distributed feedback structures and coupled semiconductor laser arrays, near and far field patterns; electroabsorption and gain, interband and intersubband transitions, quantum-well semiconductor lasers.

Objective

To teach students the fundamentals of semiconductor based Photonic Integrated Circuits. The main topics that will be coverd are:
Semiconductor waveguides, effective index and 2-D finite difference method for mode solutions; Coupled-mode Theory and Super-mode approach to coupling; Directional Couplers, Bragg gratings (Reflectors and grating assisted couplers), Butt-coupling; Propagation and bending losses; Y-branches, interferometers, beam splitters, MMI devices; Optical resonators, microresonators and whispering gallery modes; Design of semiconductor based devices for WDM applications: Tunable quantum-well lasers, tunable filters, add/drop filters, EO and EA modulators, wavelength converters, wavelength switches, etc; Fabrication of compound semiconductor photonic devices; Photonic integration and photonic integrated circuits
