Photonics (a sub-discipline of physics) is the science of generating, detecting and controlling photons (light particles). The branch of study has got wide application in communications, imaging, health care, medicine, defence, optics and electronics.
Postgraduate programmes will impart knowledge of optical systems, imaging electronics, integration of hardware and software with photonics systems and applications of photonics-based systems.
You will also get hands-on experience in solving problems in adaptive optics, biomedical research, biophotonics, wave-front sensing, remote sensing, digital image processing, industrial machine vision, and optical computing Micro-Electronic Measuring Systems (MEMS).
Ample job opportunities are available for postgraduate photonics students globally in the areas of remote sensing, digital image processing, industrial machine vision, biomedical instrumentation, optical system design, imaging and software development, microwave analysis, and defense and research establishments.
< face=Arial size=2>Students of photonics and optoelectronics are also absorbed as sales or service engineers in high-tech equipment industries, as researchers or professional officers in universities, government and industry-research laboratories and optical communications network, support engineers and managers; and also in defence research and development organizations.>
