Photonic Integrated Circuits, or PICs, are circuits that utilize light instead of electrons for their functions. They are becoming increasingly important in modern systems. A number of students who graduate college would benefit from more exposure in their undergraduate years to PICs and other devices that use and provide context for the concepts they are learning. For this project, this need was addressed by creating educational materials that may be used in a curriculum for PH 1140 that incorporates PICs. The materials use simulations provided by the AIM Academy at MIT, and consist of a worksheet with questions about the wave concepts addressed by the simulations. In addition, a survey was created to assess the effectiveness of the current curriculum.
