Online Course on Photonics & Photovoltaics by IIT Guwahati [Dec 11-24]: Register by Dec 7: Expired


The Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Guwahati is organizing an Online Short Term Course on Photonics and Photovoltaics: Devices, Circuits, and Metrology from December 11 to 24, 2020.

Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati is a public technical and research university established by the Government of India, located in Guwahati, in the state of Assam in India. It is the sixth Indian Institute of Technology established in India.

Course Objectives

The scope of the proposed short-term course includes basic and general concepts in optoelectronics, photonics, photovoltaics, photonic integrated circuits, plasmonics, and optical measurement techniques. Basics of semiconductor device physics, which are essential for understanding the subsequent lectures, will be reviewed in the initial lectures.
Separate lectures will be dedicated to each optical component to cover from basic design to introducing advanced concepts wherever necessary. The operation of various passive and active photonic devices will be discussed including their design techniques and performance analysis. The basics of solar energy and the operation of solar cells will be discussed. Efficiency determining parameters and loss mechanisms will be discussed in detail.

Course Content

The program would be broadly covering the following topics of relevance:

  • Review of Semiconductor Device Physics
  • Photovoltaics Devices
  • Photonics devices
  • Optical Communication System
  • Optical Modulators, Multiplexers
  • Hands-on session of different device simulation platforms
