Specialty: Photonics
Second degree studies, the direction of Physics

Committee: dr hab. Rafał Kotyński

The specialty of Photonics is the training of physicists in the field of optics of photonic crystals, diffraction optics and plasmons using a mathematical apparatus and information optics. The specialty is applied and includes the knowledge needed to understand the operation, use skills, and the design and modeling of photonic systems. Photonics, and in particular its part, on photonic crystal and plasmonium based systems will increasingly be used as a complementary or replacement element to electronics, going beyond simple physical telecoms, sensors and displays.

Students of Photonics specialization will have practical knowledge of photonic modeling and design techniques, knowledge of the construction and operation of optoelectronic components, measurement techniques and optical information processing techniques.

Photonics specialists will be prepared to work in scientific research centers of optics, photonics, telecommunication, or material science (especially with regard to the electromagnetic properties of nanomaterials).

Highly-skilled Photonics students will have the opportunity to pursue a second-cycle program in extended scope and work in research groups on current issues. Thanks to that they will be prepared for independent research work, among others. To undertake a third degree with the intention of starting a career as a researcher or to work in institutions requiring knowledge of how to solve complex problems.
