FIS/03 (MATERIAL PHYSICS)
DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL,COMPUTER AND BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING
2nd semester (07/03/2022 - 17/06/2022)
60 lesson hours
Physics 1 and 2 courses
Provide basic knowledge, both at a theoretical and laboratory level, in order to evaluate your interest in the large field of Biophotonics. In particular, in addition to the theoretical part, students will have the opportunity to directly carry out experiments and to put their hand on a whole series of tools, components and devices, which otherwise would remain only "on paper", so as to gain some confidence with the real activity of a laboratory.
The course program covers various topics, starting from the basics of laser sources, up to modern applications
- Laser sources (operation, types, general characteristics)
- Propagation of laser light
- Optical components and basic phenomena
- Optical fibers and integrated optical guides
- Photonic semiconductor devices
- Biophotonic applications and light-biological material interaction
PLANNED EXPERIMENTAL ACTIVITIES:
- Image formation and light polarization
- Characterization of a laser beam
- Optical fibers
- Integrated optical guides
- Semiconductor laser
- Optical analysis of fluids
Lessons (hours / year): 38
Exercises -hours / year):-
Practical activities (hours / year): 22
During the lectures the different topics of the course will be presented, paying attention to illustrating both the basic concepts and the practical applications.
In the second part of the course students will be given the opportunity to carry out different laboratory experiences under the guidance of the teacher.t
