Prerequisite
Fundamental knowledge of Electromagnetics, Electronics devices and Analytical and mathematical knowledge.
Rationale
BE students of EL Engineering need to have good understanding of the fundamentals of Photoluminous-semiconductors, Optoelectronics devices, Optical modulator, Optical detectors and understand the technology behind latest Display devices like LCD, Plasma.
Course Outcome
After completing this course students shall able to:
1. Ability to solve problems on basic semiconductor optoelectronic devices and light.
2. Ability to gain fundamental knowledge of basic semiconductor optoelectronic devices like LED, Laser and drive circuits.
3. Ability to understand the Basics of light, interaction of photons with electrons and holes in a semiconductors.
4. Ability to understand the working of optical detectors/modulators and various optical devices like amplifiers.
5. Ability to relate impacts of semiconductor material properties into the fabrications of semiconductor optoelectronic devices.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
