1 2 = Computational Optoelectronics Course = Dragica Vasileska and Gerhard Klimeck [[Image(solar_panel.jpg)]] [[Image(photodetector.bmp)]] [[Image(lasers.bmp)]] This course teaches the users the basic principles for the operation of solar cells, light-emitting diodes, photodetectors and VCSELS. For some of these devices, numerical implementation details are given and source codes are provided together with simulation examples. The outline of topics covered is as follows: ---- - + == 1. Quantum Mechanics Review == [[Image(pe.png)]] * [[Resource(9101)]] * [[Resource(9103)]] * Tsu-Esaki Formula Derivation * [[Resource(9410)]] * [[Resource(9206)]] * [[Resource(9203)]] ---- == 2.
