Opto-electronics focuses on the devices enabling a merger between the fields of photonics and electronics

Course Objective

The subject of Opto-electronics focuses on the devices enabling a merger between the fields of photonics and electronics. It is a very important course providing foundation for specializations such as high data rate optical communication systems as well as sophisticated measurement and instrumentation systems such as laser interferometers. The main Course Learning Outcomes (CLO) of the subject, to be achieved by the end of the semester, are given below

Search the Library Catalog

Welcome to the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC). This catalog provides you bibliographic information of print books available in all campus libraries of the University and provides you the facility of 2 types of searches; basic search and advance search to find the exact book or list of books you required.

Important Features for Patrons

  1. Easy access to information due to effective searching.
  2. Alert messages for patron i.e. overdue items or arrival of new items.
  3. Patron can suggest books for purchase through this system.
  4. Patrons can check his circulation history and hold on desired books.
  5. OPAC brings together library users and staff, as both can see various aspects of the system.

Optoelectronics is the study and application of electronic devices and systems that source, detect and control light, usually considered a sub-field of photonics. In this context, lightoften includes invisible forms of radiation such as gamma raysX-aysultraviolet and infrared, in addition to visible light. Optoelectronic devices are electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical transducers, or instruments that use such devices in their operation. 

Electro-optics is often erroneously used as a synonym, but is a wider branch of physics that concerns all interactions between light and electric fields, whether or not they form part of an electronic device.Optoelectronics is based on the quantum mechanical effects of light on electronic materials, especially semiconductors, sometimes in the presence of electric fields
