Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course consists of a number of generic and broad lab projects. •                   The students build experiment set-ups from scratch.•                   The projects transcend individual courses and require knowledge from several previous courses. •                   The projects can act as starting points for thesis work for students in the Erasmus Mundus MSc in Photonics (EMMP) choosing thesis subjects with experimental emphasis since the course coincides with the intended start of the thesis project within EMMP at KTH

Intended learning outcomes

After the course the students shall be able to build from scratch and in an independent manner set-ups for different photonic experiments and develop measurement methods for experimental evaluation of optical components and systems. This goal is both result oriented and possible to evaluate
