This course cannot be entirely adjusted for remote particpation in Sem 1 2021 and will include on-campus activities.
This is an undergraduate 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 and photonic sensing, and require independent design, planning, implementation and testing of photonic systems.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:Upon successful completion of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Understand and gain experience with photonic system design;
- Develop and implement solutions for photonic applications;
- Analyse and critically evaluate system performance;
- Demonstrate proficiency in working with a wide variety of photonic devices, techniques and systems integration;
- Effectively communicate decisions and solutions using appropriate media to professional and lay audiences;
- Demonstrate ability to work in a team environment.
