Description

6.637 covers the fundamentals of optical signals and modern optical devices and systems from a practical point of view. Its goal is to help students develop a thorough understanding of the underlying physical principles such that device and system design and performance can be predicted, analyzed, and understood. Most optical systems involve the use of one or more of the following: sources (e.g., lasers and light-emitting diodes), light modulation components (e.g., liquid-crystal light modulators), transmission media (e.g., free space or fibers), photodetectors (e.g., photodiodes, photomultiplier tubes), information storage devices (e.g., optical disk), processing systems (e.g., imaging and spatial filtering systems) and displays (LCOS microdisplays).

DF9X35 Networking Technology

Description

This unit is designed to enable candidates to work effectively in a local area network (LAN) installation or technical support role. It prepares them for this task by ensuring they possess the underpinning knowledge required to understand the operation of modern network equipment and software as well as industrial practice and standards. Practical experience is then gained of the implementation of typical networks using industry-standard equipment and protocols. Candidates also gain experience of interconnecting networks at both the physical and logical levels, including routing and basic firewall implementation. The unit is primarily intended for candidates who expect to work in a network installation or support role, but is also relevant to all those on an IT study programme who require

Magnetic Materials and Devices (MIT)

Description

This course explores the relationships which exist between the performance of electrical, optical, and magnetic devices and the microstructural characteristics of the materials from which they are constructed. The class uses a device-motivated approach which emphasizes emerging technologies. Device applications of physical phenomena are considered, including electrical conductivity and doping, transistors, photodetectors and photovoltaics, luminescence, light emitting diodes, lasers, optical phenomena, photonics, ferromagnetism, and magnetoresistance.
