EECS 598-07 Nonlinear Fiber Optical Devices


Description: Study of nonlinear optical devices that operate with multiple nonlinear processes to perform operations including switching, amplification, pulse generation, optical limiting, optical clock recovery and frequency switching. There will be a focus on the nonlinear processes in high energy and high power, ultrafast fiber lasers. There will be a look at the properties of photonic crystals including their nonlinear optical properties. The course requirement will be the design of your own device or the analysis of an existing device.
