This course module is part of the Interuniversity Master Programme in Photonics. It is very similar to the course module on Microphotonics thaught at the university of Gent by R. Baets and D. Van Tourhout. Although the end competences are identical, some details of the lectures do differ, simply because the students have another background. Common lecture notes between UGent and VUB are used. Moreover supplementary copies of the transparancies are available.

This course contributes to the general competences of the Master in Engineering: Photonics.
In photonics more and more microscopic components are being used, therefore understanding their properties is essential for understanding photonic applications and designing your own components.
Students need to see that light propagation can best be described in Fourier space, creating "modern" techniques of light manipulation such as: optical filtering, pattern recognition, diffractive / holographic optical components. They must also be able to apply those techniques themselves. Students should also get an insight into different fabrication and characterization techniques for refractive and diffractive micro-optical components. Finally, students should be able to use these components in the design of different micro-photonic systems; Therefore there are examples discussed in the course.
This course contributes to the following competences:
Master and apply advanced knowledge in the own field of engineering in case of complex problems.
Apply Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) tools and sophisticated calculation and communication instruments in a creative and target-oriented way.
Specify, design and test complex photonic components and systems.
Understand and apply the properties of the most important optical materials.
Be acquainted with the recent innovation trends in the domain of photonics.
Have knowledge of the most important application areas of photonic materials, components and systems.
Perform research by means of scientific literature.
Select and apply the proper models, methods and techniques.
Develop and validate mathematical models and methods.
Understand the context of technical or scientific papers in the field of photonics and further investigate unclear parts independently.
Use own knowledge in a creative, target-oriented and innovative way when it comes to research, conceptual design and production.
Reflect on own way of thinking and acting and be aware of the own expertise.
Ability to talk about field of specialisation, also in English.
Project planning: ability to formulate objectives, report efficiently, keep track of end-goals and progress of the project.
Report on technical or scientific subjects orally, in writing and in graphics.
Function as a member of an international team.
Act in an ethical, professional and social way.
Master the complexity of technical systems by the use of system- and process models.
Reconcile conflicting specifications and boundary conditions and transform them into high-quality, innovative concepts or processes.
Transform incomplete, contradictory or redundant data into useful information.
Dispose of enough knowledge and comprehension to control the results of complex calculations or make approximate estimates.
Pay attention to energy-efficiency, environmental pressure, use of raw materials and labour costs.
Use photonic components and systems accurately.
Choose the most appropriate design and test methods, including CAD methods, for photonic components and systems, understand their theoretical background and apply them accurately.
De beoordeling bestaat uit volgende opdrachtcategorieën:
Examen Mondeling bepaalt 60% van het eindcijfer
Examen Praktijk bepaalt 40% van het eindcijfer

The final grade is composed based on the following categories:
Oral Exam determines 60% of the final mark.
Practical Assignment determines 40% of the final mark.
Within the Oral Exam category, the following assignments need to be completed:
Oral Exam with a relative weight of 6 which comprises 60% of the final mark.
Note: The students will be questioned about their knowledge, insight and skills of the course. They are given time to prepare their answers. These are open questions, without using book or course. This part has a relative weight of 4 or 40% of the final mark.
The students are also being asked to discuss a microphotonics device or a system in detail in a report, which should concentrate on the basic operation principle of the device/system, general design and fabrication approaches, as well as state-of-the-art of the field. The report needs to be handed in with the course titular 10 calendar days before the exam and will be discussed and defended by the student at the oral exam. This part has a relative weight of 2 or 20% of the final mark.
Within the Practical Assignment category, the following assignments need to be completed:
Project exercise sessions with reports with a relative weight of 4 which comprises 40% of the final mark.
Note: There will be a number of class sessions during which the students will work individually or in groups of 2 to study various design problems. After each session a detailed report should be handed explaining the study, goals and detailed design process with conclusions. Attitude in the sessions and quality of the reports will be used to grade the student.
The same holds for the second exam session.
