Career options: the program is aimed at training highly qualified specialists in the field of nanomaterials and light guide photonics. Students and graduates do research and conduct projects in the field of the development of devices and systems based on fiber optics and programmable electronics.
We live in the information age, and it is no secret that modern technologies, which are based on advances in the field of laser photonics and optoelectronics, play a very important role in our lives. Photonics covers a wide range of optical, electro-optical and optoelectronic devices and their various applications from transmitting information via optical fibers to creating new sensors that modulate light signals in accordance with the slightest changes in the environment.
Almost all modern control and communication systems use programmable digital devices equipped with microcontrollers, signal processors and programmable logic integrated circuits.
The combination of photonics and electronics opens up new opportunities and allows for increasing the capabilities of modern devices, as well as creating technologies for transmitting terabit information flows over long distances, and conducting precision measurements in the remote places of our planet, on the ocean floor, underground, under conditions of the high temperatures and radiation. It is almost impossible to imagine our modern life without all these achievements. In order to develop such systems and maintain the efficiency of existing ones, one has to possess profound knowledge and skills in the field of photonics and electronics and this program is designed to help to acquire those.
