M.Phil. Photonics

Master of Philosophy in Photonics

Do you intent to undertake a short term research program in the field of photonics? Want to make a career learning and disseminating details like how light gets generated, emitted and transmitted? Then, learn about the course M.Phil Photonics.

Course Name: M.Phil. Photonics
Group: M.Phil.
Stream: Science
Course Category: Physics
Duration: 1 year (2 semesters)


The field of photonics mainly concerns with the particle properties of light or photon. Photons are finding increasing applications in a number of areas and they cover the whole spectrum of light, from ultra violet to infra-red. Most of the applications are however to be found within the visible spectrum to near infra-red light. Photonics have applications in fibre optics, telecommunication, signal processing, transmission, medicine, biotechnology and a range of sensing and detecting equipment. Numerous fields are associated with photonics, such as optoelectronics, electro-optics, optomechanics and quantum optics. Applications in photonics use semiconductor diodes, LEDs and lasers as light source.

Eligibility and course duration

More about the course

A short research program, M.Phil photonics has a research component along with the coursework. The coursework consists of few papers. Two of the papers are related to the subject i.e. photonics and a third one is devoted to research methodology, where you learn the fundamental principles behind carrying out research and also lessons on teaching and the learning process. Other than that, the candidates have to take certain advanced level courses in photonics and related areas. Other than lectures and seminars at regular intervals, it is through working at laboratories that one gets to learn in this field. Under the support and supervision of a guide, one gets to carry out his or her research work in the concerned area. The results of the research work are compiled into a report or dissertation that is submitted at the end of final semester.

Prospects and job opportunities

The M.Phil course provides the perfect background for taking up a PhD program in photonics. It kind of prepares you for the grueling work schedule of a research student during his or her PhD. Undertaking a PhD, ultimately leads you to a career in advanced research in this upcoming field. Numerous applications are still to be discovered in photonics and there is still a lot to learn about optics and light. You may also take up academics in case you are inclined towards teaching. The industries too provide for jobs in this sector
