Academic information

Content and topics:
Light in all its forms : applications of the "visible invisible". The spectrum of the applications of light is probably just as wide as that of light itself. Research is very active in many sectors of industry such as energy, nuclear, electronics, defense, telecommunications, and biomedical. It is therefore a transverse field of study. Light is about to revolutionize our world by infiltrating our lives! By developing the applications of light, we will achieve the economic, ecological and technological targets that appeared to be utopian 10 years ago.
Learning goals and objectives:
To think about new issues about light, and its impact both on technological innovation and engineering.
Examination type:
Written exam at the end of the week.
ECTS credits issued:
