Optics of semiconductor nano-structures

18 Spring

Course Outline     This is an introductory-level course in the field of optical and optoelectronic properties of semiconductors and their nanostructures. It surveys the basic ideas of quantum mechanics as tools for the application-oriented studies in nano-engineered optoelectronics. Even though the major part of this class is devoted to the properties in conventional semiconductor nanostructures such as quantum wells and quantum dots, newly developed nano-materials (including graphene, TMDCs and wide-gap-based derivatives ) will be introduced in terms of integrated funtionalitiesof electronics, photonics, and heat managements. This course also contains a series of the presentations by students on the original research papers of their interests in the second half.
