Courses

Optics I

Optics is an old field that is involved in many modern subjects, from experimental techniques to everyday applications. This introductory course shows many basic aspects of optics: propagation, dispersion, interference, diffraction, polarization, modulation, guidance, etc.

Experimental methods in physics

The course's objectivs are: Learning several advenced methods in experimental physics, and critical reading of experimental papers.

Introduction to Metalorganic Vapour Phase Epitaxy of III-V semiconductors

This course offers an insight into the science of epitaxial growth, a chapter of surface science requiring basic understanding of thermodynamics, crystallography, electronic and optical properties of semiconductors.
