Photonic integrated circuit

Indian Institute of Science Bangalore and NPTEL via Swayam


This is a graduate-level course for those who are interested in Lightwave/photonic circuits. The course introduces essential concepts required to understand the operation of various integrated photonic components and draws a parallel with bulk components. This course will cover theory, design, fabrication, and application aspects of photonic materials and devices. In addition to lectures, a selection of demonstration of device fabrication and characterisation will be presented.
