E E (MATSE) 526 Nonlinear Optical Materials (3)
Nonlinear Optical Materials is a course that will generally be offered in spring semesters. It is designed for students who are interested in the materials science-related interdisciplinary electronics/electro-optic engineering areas to provide an essential understanding of the mechanisms of the polarization nonlinearity in electronic materials as well as the principles of operation of these materials in various photonic and optoelectronic applications (e.g., frequency conversion, optical control/communication, and information storage). Analytical methods utilizing the electromagnetic wave theories and tensor operations will be covered in this course to treat anisotropic nonlinear optical materials for their wave-matter interaction processes and to enable device designs. Technological issues in research and development of advanced optoelectronic devices using nonlinear optical materials are discussed with students' participation.
Students wishing to take this course should be familiar with optical properties of materials and basic tensor notations.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
