PRACTICAL SESSIONS

Practice 1. LASER LIGHT GAUSSIAN BEAM: TEM00 MODE (2 SESSIONS)

Gaussian beams are commonly used to represent laser beams. In general, the propagation of a laser beam can be approximated by assuming that the laser beam has a Gaussian profile intensity corresponding to the theoretical TEM00 mode. Thus, a first step in the study of laser devices is important to analyse the Gaussian beam. This practice is intended to deepen into the foundations of the Gaussian beam studied in class through signal processing with MATLAB.

Documents to deliver:

• Source files: All those file necessary for the proper compilation and construction code, never executable files or object code. The delivered code must meet the specific objectives described in the practice instructions and have comments to help monitoring and correction and not have syntax errors or execution.
• Memory. Arguments and justifications to all questions raised in practice.

In each practice the following aspects will be assessed:

• Operational knowledge of the subject.
• Structure in the statement of the problem and its resolution.
• Resolution: type of solution, justification and correction.
• Originality: no exercise is valued if its resolution is equal to or much like another done in a previous course by other students.
• Spelling, format and presentation.
• Presentation.

Practice 2. ELECTROMAGNETIC CHARACTERIZATION OF THE SPREAD OF LIGHT IN STEP INDEX FIBRE OPTIC (3 sessions)

In this practice we propose to study the propagation of light as dictated by electromagnetic theory in a dielectric medium with a specific structure of great importance in communications systems currently. Specifically, this practice is devoted to characterize the behaviour of electromagnetic propagation in step index optical fibres according to modal theory by signal processing with MATLAB.

4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

A1 - Lectures in large group

The methodology to be followed in the lectures in large group lectures will be a mixture of theory and exposing and general examples in the classroom designated for the subject in the middle.

The student must follow the teacher's presentation with the material provided for this purpose, slide show notes, which must be completed with your own notes and the subsequent revision of the recommended basic bibliography.

Active, respectful and responsible participation, either to raise questions or to respond to requests or questions from the teacher, will be evaluated positively in a corresponding factor.

The autonomous student work should focus on the review of the concepts and theoretical aspects taught in class, conducting exercises and studying them with the material provided by the teacher, student notes and bibliography.

Furthermore, control lectures will be held to monitor the progress and assimilation of the concepts by students.

A2 - Classes in groups of practices

Firstly, work in small group classes will be based on practical activities in the laboratory. The student's work will focus on developing applications or learning tasks designated by the teacher, culminating with the achievement of the targets for each practice. Secondly, small group classes consist of solving exercises and practical issues about the subject.

Attendance and active, respectful and responsible participation, either to raise questions or to respond to requests or questions from the teacher, it will be evaluated positively in a corresponding factor.

With regard to self-work, it will focus on the development of the documentation to be submitted for every practice and exposition, and to complete the work that has been initiated in the laboratory and that could not be completed in the corresponding session.

Furthermore, controls sessions in the small group classes will be held to monitor the progress and assimilation of the concepts by students.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

DETAILED INFORMATION:

Once the semester is finished, the student can choose between two kinds of evaluation: OVERALL or ONLY EXAM.

1. OVERALL EVALUATION

This kind of evaluation is organized using the activities described in the previous table.

The exam of the subject will evaluate the theoretical and operating parts (S2 and S3). The student must demonstrate to have acquired the subject competences. This final exam will be weighted as the 50% of the evaluated parts (S2 and S3). The exam does not include the practising part that is evaluated after finishing each practising. Students who have marks higher or equal to 5.0 out of 10 in the practising part of the OVERALL EVALUATION do not have to make the laboratory practising exam in the ONLY EXAM evaluation

In order to pass the subject, the following conditions must be fulfilled:

1. The student must have a mark higher or equal to 4.0 out of 10 in the exam (S2 and S3 parts).
2. The student must have a mark higher or equal to 4.0 out of 10 in the practising part.
3. The student must have a global mark higher or equal to 5.0 out of 10.

The marks obtained in each part of the overall evaluation are valid during the same academic year.

The student can resign the overall evaluation at any moment, but from then, the kind of evaluation ONLY EXAM will be the chosen evaluation for the rest of the course.

2. ONLY EXAM EVALUATION

This kind of evaluation is organized in an only exam in which all parts of the subject are evaluated. The final exam is weighted in the following way:

• S2 Theoretical concepts and S3 Exercises, cases and works: 70%.
• S4 Laboratory practising: 30%.

In order to pass the subject, the student must have marks higher or equal to 5.0 out of 10 at each part of the final exam.

Those parts with a mark higher or equal to 5.0 are maintained during the same academic year.
