  Course Description
Introduces optoelectronic systems. This design course emphasizes the interaction of optics, lasers, mechanics, electronics, and programming. It requires students design an optoelectronic system with a strong emphasis on team learning and teaching. Some topics of interest include: design methodology; team dynamics; light sources and detectors; light propagation; lens and mirrors; electro optics; interaction of light with materials; nonlinear optics for harmonic generation; optical detection and modulation; and discussion of selected optoelectronic devices and applications such as CD players, DVD, display systems, semiconductor lasers and light emitting diodes, laser printers, barcode scanners, digital cameras, optical coherence tomography, flow cytometry, interferometric systems and optical communications. Requires project proposal, progress reports and presentations and final written reports and presentations.
