Photonics and Microwave Engineering, FMI
Photonics is one of the fastest developing areas in the field of information and communication technology. Currently, the most important application is found in high-capacity telecommunications, but photonics has a wider scope and its contributions to sensing and imaging applications are of growing importance, particularly within biophotonics.
At FMI we conduct research and education over a broad spectrum of photonics, ranging from fundamental device technology to optical networking.
deals with phenomena that occur when the wavelength of a modulated electromagnetic field becomes so short that it is comparable to the size of the actual device structure. In modern electronics and electrical engineering, the term in practice refers to high-frequency electronics, and every engineer working with frequencies of about 1 GHz or higher needs to know at least the basics of microwave engineering.
