A Brief Overview:
- Radio-frequency (RF) engineering deals in devices that are designed to operate within the range of about 3 kHz up to 300 GHz. RF engineering finds applications into all systems that transmits or receives radio waves, (eg. mobile phones, radar, Wi-Fi, just to name a few).
- Photonics engineering deals in light generation, manipulation, waveguiding and detection (even down to nanoscale) in optical and NIR regime. It also includes optical signal processing, switching, amplification, and sensing.
- RF photonics: The availability of wideband photonic devices (sources, modulators, and detectors) essentially extend the frequency and bandwidths of typical RF systems. This allows the student to learn to amalgamate RF and photonics systems in order to leverage some of key advantages over the conventional communication transmission mediums such as reduced size and weight, low cost, improved immunity to electromagnetic interference and high data transfer capacity.
