Courses

Optics I

This course bridges between basic optics (geometrical optics, waves) and advanced theory (photons, Fourier optics). Starting from Maxwell's equations, the theory of electromagnetic waves is developed, with highlights on dispersion, diffraction and interfe...

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.
