goals

The students will be acquiring advanced knowledge on properties, preparation, and applications of optical fibers.

content

First of all an introduction in the basics of optics is given. The properties, preparation methods and components for fiber coupling are discussed in own chapters. In following chapters the application of optical fibers in optical communication, as sensing devices and as fiber lasers are discussed. The last chapter contains an introduction in photonic crystal fibers.
