FYS-6107 Physics of Optoelectronics, 5 cr
Suitable for postgraduate studies.
Mircea Guina, Teemu Hakkarainen, Antti Tukiainen
After compleating the course, the student will be able to describe the connection between material engineering aspects (e.g. composition, strain, doping), and the main features of optoelectronic heterostructures, such as bandgap, carrier transport, and optical properties. Moreover, the student will be able to identify major classes of optoelectronics materials, and different regimes of carrier-photon interaction, which govern the operation of optoelectronic devices. The student is able to solve problems related to the subject area by applying appropriate equations for deriving specific design guidelines, and to evaluate the basic functions of optolectronics heterostructures. The course includes laboratory experiments. After passing the course, the student is able to: - describe the connection between experiments and the theory presented at the lectures. - perform specifiec measurements and to analyse and report their results.

The total mark is determined based on a final exam (60% weight), student's activity in exercise classes (20% weight), and mandatory laboratory works (20% weight). Laboratory reports are required and reviewed and should meet the criteria of scientific reports. Analysis of the results, the structure, language, and style of the reports are assessed.
