Unit Code: PHY702

Unit Title: Communication Physics

The unit is intended to provide a general scope of communication systems from the point of view of Physics including: emitters, transmission media and receivers analysed as different parts where various physical phenomena take place and as a whole communication system composed of interrelated elements. The link between performance limits of communication systems and the underlying physical phenomena will be made clear, as well as how electronics, optoelectronics and information theory can improve the capacity and quality of data transmission systems.
