Teaching Packages

The below teaching packages are for those intending to teach this content to students or professionals. Materials can include module blueprints, slides with instructor notes, and questions with answers.

Integrated Photonics

Integrated Silicon Photonics
Integrated silicon photonics

Integrated Silicon Photonics provides an introduction to optical confinement and waveguide constraints for a planar CMOS-compatible platform, followed by a review of the performance criteria for key passive/active planar devices, materials science or device physics insights for their chip integration, and leading-edge device designs and performance achievements.

When you click on the below link to download the teaching package, you will be first asked to fill out a survey, and then a terms-of-use agreement, and then will be able to download the file.

Design of Photonic Integrated Devices and Circuits
Si Photonic Circuit

Design of Photonic Integrated Devices and Circuits provides learners with approaches for designing photonic integrated devices and circuits using available photonic design automation tools, and how the essential building blocks, such as various passive and active devices, are combined to form various photonic integrated circuits.

The teaching package will be posted soon.

Photonics Materials and Devices
Monolithic Magneto-optic Isolator

There are two modules within Photonic Materials and Devices:

PMD1 - Fundamentals
PMD2 - Materials and Passive Devices

They can be used individually, or in sequence.

Below is a complete description of the modules.

Here you can find the seven parts of the M1- Fundamentals module (files PMD1.1-PMD1.7),  as well as a folder that includes all seven sections (PMD1).
