This is a laboratory course to provide students with hands-on experience in working with photonics components, devices and instruments.  These experiments are designed to reinforce theoretical concepts introduced in fibre optic communications, waveguide sensing, as well as biophotonics.

Learning Outcomes

On satisfying the requirements of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

 

1. Work with photonics components, devices and systems

2. Critically analyse and report on advanced level laboratory experimentation and measurement.

3. Be able to perform basic background and literature research relevant to experimental subject to obtain technical insight.


Indicative Assessment

12 experimental log entries (40%) LO 1 - 2.

 3 X 20-page lab reports (60%) LO 1 – 3.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
