Quantum fundamentals of optical and electronic devices

Course Description

In this course, students will gain advanced understanding of the operation of modern high-speed optoelectronic and high-frequency electronic devices. The operation of present-day semiconductor lasers and light-emitting diodes, heterojunction bipolar and field effect transistors can only be understood using quantum mechanics. This course will present the quantum nature of light and matter, their interaction, noise in light and electronics, and the properties of semiconductor heterojunctions.
