3. Optoelectronic Devices and Components

The study and working of electronic devices or systems that source, detect and control light, with a sub-field called photonics is known as Optoelectronics. This is type of system in which the light includes invisible radiations such as infrared, UV, X-rays and Gamma rays along with invisible light. This is the type of device which has got electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical transducers.

4. Nonlinear Optics

It is the study of phenomenon which takes place as the consequence of the changes in the optical properties of a material system in the presence of light. Nonlinearity is typically observed at high intensities (for example those which are generated by lasers). Nonlinear optics provides the key technologies which helps in providing radiation sources in various wavelength ranges from x-rays to terahertz. These are basically used in combination with laser technology.

5. Photonics in Optics

The term photonics was first developed as an outgrowth of the practical semiconductor light emitters. It is the science which belongs to physical science department which gives the idea of light (photon) generation, detection and manipulation through various processes like transmission, emission, signal processing, modulation, amplification, switching and sensing. Light is being studied since hundred years by the scientists from which they have discovered that the colours of the rainbow are just a small part of the entire light wave range known as the electromagnetic spectrum.

6. Quantum Electrodynamics

Quantum Electrodynamics or QED is a quantum field theory of the electromagnetic force. If we take an example which has two electrons with force between them such that classical theory of electromagnetism would describe it as arising from the electric filed being produced by the electrons at the positions of other. This force can be calculated using Coulomb’s Law.

7. Optical Amplifier

An Optical Amplifier is a device which amplifies an optical signal without the need of converting into an electrical signal. Optical Amplifier is sometimes known to be a laser without an optical cavity or the one in which the feedback is being suppressed. These are basically important in optical communication and laser physics. They are also used as the optical repeaters in the long distance fiber optic cables in order to carry much of the world’s telecommunication links.

14. Optical Fiber Communications

This is the technology which has a coverage of transmitting information across the nations which is almost equivalent to the areas consisting of regional, national, international and transoceanic distances. This form of communication system relies mostly on various factors like LEDs or lasers, amplifiers and wave division multiplexing (WDM) in order to transmit huge data. Thus, it is capable of transmitting the information or data among the various telecommunication networks.
