  • EE 3215 Electronics I

    Understanding the operating principles, characteristics, and their usages of the electronic components are the basic foundation of electronic circuit designs. This course will cover three basic types of electronic components - diodes, bipolar junction transistors and field effect transistors - in details. The course is designed to educate students the electronic characteristics, as well as the electronic modeling of the devices. Applying these electronic devices to practical circuit designs are also emphasized in the course.

    Light has been used in electronic equipments, such as illumination and biomedical imaging, for many decades because it has many unique properties. There is a trend to use light to partially or completely replace the traditional electronic systems in applications such as communication, data storage, and remote sensing. This trend has made it crucial for engineering students to understand the properties of light so that one can apply light in applications.This course introduces some of the most important concepts in optical engineering and prepares students a solid foundation to apply them to applications in the field. The course starts out by theoretical descriptions of light with Maxwell’s equations and discusses the properties of light thereafter, including guided-wave optics, transmission and reflection of light, polarization effects, optical aberrations and ray optics, optical scattering, optical interference and diffraction, optical coherency, lasers and optical detectors.
