Electro-optics communication course for electronics engineering students
Author(s): Aaron Peled

Paper Abstract

The scope of this paper is to present a specific program of an Electrooptics Communication course taught for ten years during the final year at undergraduate level at CTEH. Our interpretation of the subjects to be given in such a course is to supplement optical concepts and integrate them with previously taught basic principles in telecommunication courses, physics and electromagnetic theory. This means that the course relies upon former knowledge of electronic engineering of old established communication technologies, such as microwave radio, coaxial transmission, wire-pair data communication systems and telecommunication theory. In this way, EE students receive a condensed but balanced integration of EO communication concepts from the various disciplines. These elements allow them to design and implement in their final year, practical projects of Electrooptic communication circuits and systems, which excell today in device availability and economics.
