Optoelectronic Systems (OPTO 2)

Electronic document: 
Créditos Totales: 
4.0
Delivery dates: 
Second semester
Type of subject: 
Itinerario I2
Instructional Objectives: 

The aim of the course is to develop the basic knowledge to understand the behavior of basic optoelectronic components that use semiconductors: light emitting diodes, laser diodes, photodetectors, and solar cell. To do this, it will start from the analysis of the origin of optical processes in semiconductors, its application in micro and nanostructures to come to understand the basic technology found in these devices and the description of these important figures. Finally, it will examine the application of these devices in present and social use applications such as environment sensors and bio-photonics, and their use in medical applications.
