Advanced microfabrication practicals

This TP allows for in-depth training on advanced micro and nanofabrication methods in a clean-room environment for selected applications, gain deeper knowledge in MEMS/NEMS processes, work in a small group together with PhD students/postdocs during 14 weeks touching all aspects of a microprocess.

Classical and quantum photonic transducers

This course gives an introduction to transducers by both considering fundamental principles and their application in classical and quantum systems. The course builds up on the fundamental concept of coupling of two subsystems as a mean to use one subsystem to extract information about the other.

Fundamentals of integrated photonic components

This course gives an introduction to basic integrated photonics components that are at the core of photonic nanotechnologies today. The course combines theoretical description with practical lab work where students will do simulations in CST Microwave Studio.
