If you opt for the Optics & Biophysics specialization of the Master’s programme in Applied Physics, you will take four mandatory general track courses. You will also take a number of chair-specific mandatory courses, depending on the research group in which you will be doing your graduation assignment. In addition, the various research groups offer a number of elective courses that you can choose from.
The four mandatory track courses are Laser Physics, which deals with the main physical aspects of a very important light source, the laser; Quantum Optics, in which we will study the quantum properties of light, taking ground-breaking experiments as our guide; Wave Optics; and Quantum Emitters.
You will take different courses depending on the research group where you will be doing your graduation assignment. Each research group has some mandatory courses and a number of recommend courses. A brief course overview is shown below.
