The Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors and NETworks - PIXNET Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna intends to be an interdisciplinary, multi-national initiative, training young telecommunication and electrical engineers to investigate the adoption of Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) as the central element in the evolution of information and communication devices (e.g. Data Centers, mobile terminals, etc.).
PIXNET encompasses a wide range of topics and expertise related to the development of highly-skilled “photonic engineers for communication and sensing”.
At the end of the learning activities, students will have mastered the following areas:
- Optical communication
- Optical network architectures
- Optical components
- Optical signal processing
- Photonic integration technologies
