ECE 494/594: Laser Electronics II: Spring 1998
Electrical and Computer Engineering
Laboratory Credit: 4 Design Credit: 2
Potential topics are listed below:
Optics for Communications
Lasers in Image Processing
Lasers in Medicine
Lasers in Computers
Lasers in Non-destructive testing
Lasers in Materials Processing
Design of Optics Software
You, the students, working in groups, will design practical products using photonic devices as building blocks. Specifically, the groups will be asked to think of how photonic devices can be used to replace current electronic versions. In addition, students can choose a software design project related to optics, e.g., optical beam propagation using C, C++ or Visual Basic.
