Overview

This Active Optical Devices offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Colorado Boulder is designed to help you gain complete understanding of active optical devices by clearly defining and interconnecting the fundamental physical mechanisms, device design principles, and device performance. You will study and gain active experience with light emitting semiconductor devices like light emitting diodes and lasers, nanophotonics, optical detectors, and displays.

Specialization Learning Outcomes:

  • Analyze and design semiconductor light sources, and surrounding optical systems
  • Analyze and design detection systems for LIDAR, microscopy and cameras
  • Analyze and design systems for optical device systems that can adapt to the environment at hand.
  • Use lasers and optical electronics in electronic systems through an understanding of the interaction of light and atoms, laser rate equations and noise in photo-detection.
