Optic detection method including interaction between light and matter, non-linear optic, fiber optics and optics signal processing are also discussed. In the laser part, discussion will include the definition, application, and types of laser including combination p-n and spectrum formed by laser. Several laser application will also be discussed such as in communication and medical devices as well as in security. Solar cell will be discussed at the end of the course which will include the basic properties, spectrum response, recombination current, serial resistance and radiation effect.

SE31003 ELECTROACOUSTICS
This course discusses about process involves in converting signal from sound wave to electrical signal and vice versa, that is from electrical signal to sound wave. There are two important elements to be stressed in this course, which are the application of acoustical physics which includes the theory of sound wave and how it can be used in detection of sound and application of electronics in sound signal detection. Contents of the course are includes discussion on transducers to convert sound signal to electrical signal such as microphones and their types; discussion on transducers to convert electrical signal to sound signal such as loudspeakers and their types. In general, this course is a combination of application between physics knowledge in sound and electronics, which is strongly related to instrumentation.

SE31203 DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING
This course is to expose on processing methods of digital signal such as from analogue to digital, input and output, noise, filtration, various forms of discrete time signal and sequence system. The course is also covering several types of Fourier’s transform and Z transform, their applications and importance examples in signal processing. Further, these will be followed by advanced understanding of Fourier’s transform using computer package and numerical analysis solutions for input-output.
