Optoelectronics I – Overview

About the lecture

Time and place

Tue 9.30-11.45

conference room in the Nano-Institute Munich at Königinstr. 10

 Semester start

The first lecture will start at 9:30 on Tuesday, 15th October 2019. There will be no tutorials on that day. In the following weeks, the lectures will also start at 9:30. The tutorials are planned from 8:30 till 9:30, but we discuss the possibility of a second tutorial after the lecture.

The lecture will be in the conference room in the Nano-Institute Munich at Königinstr. 10 on the 1st floor (street entrance level). The tutorials will be in the same building.

Notes on lecture 10 (17th December 2019): lecture will be shorter (9:30-10:30) and will be immediately followed by a tour of the spectroscopy labs (10:30-11:00) and a small reception in the atrium on the 2nd floor (11:00-11:45).

Lecture Topics

  • Fundamentals
    • Semiconductor basics
    • Charge carrier transport and scattering
    • Optical properties of semiconductors
    • Excitons and field effects
    • Semiconductor interfaces
  • Optoelectronic devices
    • Light-emitting diodes (LEDs)
    • Laserdiodes
    • Photodetectors
    • Solar cells
    • Modulators, switches and amplifiers
    • Optical fibers

In addition topics of current research will be covered. Please note that the lecture in the winter semester 2018/19 will cover the "inorganic" part. The organic part will follow in the summer semester 2020.
