    This subject cannot be chosen by anybody who has accomplished the VIEE9114 Optoelektronika subject.
    7. Objectives, learning outcomes and obtained knowledge The subject discusses a relatively broad range of optoelectronic devices in depth of the knowledge that students have sure knowledge of device operating characteristics, structure, typical application areas in optical communications and in measurenments. The subject is presented only in the English language, primarily for foreign students, but Hungarian students may also elect it.
