The course is taught in English. This teaching unit offers an in-depth coverage of coherent optics (photonics). This subject deals with the peculiar properties of laser light and is the basis for technological achievements such as fiber optics communication networks ('broad band access'), deformation or pollution optical sensors or devices used for biological investigations. In particular, both free-space and guided-wave propagation of optical fields are addressed. A number of fundamental optical components are described and the relevant design methods are presented. In addition, the student is exposed to signal-integrity issues of electromagnetic compatibility and quantitative methods are explained to assess such effects in multi-signal transfer structures.

Exercise sessions are integrated in the lectures. There will be a couple of laboratory sessions covering optical beam propagation and diffraction phenomena. During the course 7-8 homeworks will be assigned, which require the development of simple Matlab programs.

Modalità di esame: Prova orale obbligatoria;
Exam: Compulsory oral exam;
... Oral exam (30-45 minutes) aiming at ascertaining if the expected learning outcomes indicated in section 2 have been reached. The students will run the programs developed in the home-works and will discuss the results on the basis of the theory presented in the course.
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.

In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
