Photonic Communications Engineering II E
Spring
Catalog Data: 

Photonic Communications Engineering (PCE) consists of two parts (I and II). PCE I covers optical fiber light guiding and wave propagation characteristics, materials properties, optical transmitters, receivers and amplifiers, communications systems and fiber optics networks and the Internet. PCE II builds upon this knowledge with advanced subjects in system modeling, device integration, and systems-level engineering. Reference material for the course is in a digital platform to allow dense hyper-linking between topics so that students from various disciplines can customize the reading material to their individual background knowledge. The course is team taught by faculty from the Center for Integrated Access Networks (http://www.cian-erc.org/), which is a multi-institutional Engineering Research Center led by UA with partner schools: UCSD, UCLA, Columbia, Berkeley, Caltech, NSU, Tuskegee, and USC. Faculty from partner schools will deliver lectures via videoconference for live/synchronous student interaction.
