This Lab Course offers a hands-on introduction to numerical methods in computational photonics. Photonic components will be modeled, and the exploited optical effects will be theoretically studied. The implementation of the simulation codes will be in Matlab. In detail, following topics will be covered:

- Spatial and temporal optical propagation in a nonlinear (Kerr) medium: Split-step Fourier method

- Optical propagation through a one-dimensional non-periodic and periodic ("1-D photonic crystal") multilayer structure: Transfer matrix method

- Waveguide modes in a plasmonic resonator: Eigenmode solver

- Rate equation model of a semiconductor laser: Ordinary differential equation solver

- Semiclassical model of light-matter interaction based on Maxwell-Bloch equations: Finite difference discretization
Basic knowledge of physical concepts, electromagnetic field theory, electronic devices.
After the successful completion of this module, the students will be able to

- apply common numerical methods to the simulation of photonic components

- apply Matlab to numerical code development

- develop basic simulation tools for photonic components

- by using these numerical models analyze linear and nonlinear optical propagation
as well as light emission and absorption
Small lectures will provide the theoretical background. The literature provided will inspire the students to deepen their knowledge. The simulation tasks are supervised by institute scientists.
Für die Anmeldung zur Teilnahme müssen Sie sich in TUMonline als Studierende*r identifizieren.
Text material covering the current lab topic will be provided by the tutor. Additional reading material and useful web sources will be provided to the students in electronic form.
