PS 266

PS 266 Advanced Fiber Devices (3 units)
 
This course focuses on the development of fiber-based devices for gain, switching, control and sensing. The Raman amplification process, the rare earth doped fiber laser as well as multiplexers, dispersion correcting fibers, speciality fibers, Bragg gratings and the use of fibers as sensors will be covered.

Prerequisite: PS 133
