The optical science and technology of Laser, Photonics and Vision is a field of knowledge whose objective is the study of the generation, transmission, detection, control and manipulation of light. This study is oriented towards the development of technologies with applications of high interest in multiple and disparate socioeconomic and health fields, ranging from telecommunications, life and health sciences, the environment, industrial metrology, leisure... to the scientific-technical frontiers such as nano-optics, quantum processing and communications, optical metamaterials, etc.
This science ranges from the development of devices that are part of everyday life to innovative research that reaches the frontiers of scientific knowledge. The evolution of optical science and technology of Laser, Photonics and Vision has been constant throughout history, accompanying the development of many other disciplines that directly contributed to progress and innovation. Currently and naturally, optics is complemented by electronics, computing, micromechanics, etc., giving rise to a myriad of highly specialized applications (industrial optical metrology techniques, bio-optical instrumentation, environmental optical sensors). , telecommunications, correction of visual defects, lighting, etc) and consumer products (digital cameras, projectors, optical storage media, all kinds of ophthalmic lenses, etc). In socio-political terms, the scientific-technical sector of optical and photonic science and technology is extremely important for the great challenges of the 21st century, and in fact photonic technologies are considered strategic technologies (KETs) by the Commission European.

1) Students who come from official master's degrees with topics related to the Doctoral Program will be able to access the Doctoral Program without training supplements, for example: the USC-UVigo-UDC Interuniversity Master's Degree in Photonics and Laser Technologies, USC-U Interuniversity Master's Degree .Valladolid, U. Coimbra,U..Murcia, UCM,UMH, in Research in Vision Sciences, Master UVigo -UdC in Applied Physics, Master UVigo in Research in advanced technologies and processes in industry, Master UPC- UAB- UB-ICFO in Photonics, UCM Master in Optical and Image Technologies, USAL Master in Physics and Laser Technologies, Master in Materials Science and Technology, Master in Renewable Energy, Master in Mathematical Engineering, Master in Physics, and others to be determined by the CAPD.
2) In the case of those students who come from Master's degrees whose content is not related to the Doctoral Program, admission may be conditional on passing specific training complements that must be specified for each student by the CAPD. These training complements will correspond, at most, to 12 ECTS.
3) Regarding the degree of knowledge of the English language, it is advisable to have accreditation of an intermediate B1 level of said language (level established within the European Framework of Reference on Language Knowledge) and accredited to the CAPD through any official certification. In the case of lacking said official certification, the CAPD will carry out the tests it deems appropriate: oral and/or written test and/or personal interview, to evaluate the student's knowledge of the English language, but they will always be required to acquire said certification. certification during the first two years of the program. The preferred working language will be English. Scientific English is considered essential for the programme.
4) Finally, as complementary information and recommendation to the regulatory process of access and admission to the doctoral program, it is advisable to indicate some aspects about attitudes, abilities, prior knowledge, languages, etc., which are considered highly recommended for those students interested in the program. doctoral program: a. Interest in scientific-technical research tasks, particularly in the field of lasers, photonics and vision. b. Know how to carry out systematic bibliographic searches on a specific scientific-technical aspect. c. Know how to structure and develop scientific work, based on the experience acquired in the Bachelor's and Master's degrees. d. -Have knowledge about optics in general and lasers, photonics and vision in particular. The more subjects, courses, etc. The student will take courses related to optics, the easier their transition through the program will be.
5) Students with a foreign degree that has not been approved may apply for admission to the doctoral program provided that a level of training equivalent to that of the official Spanish university master's degree is accredited and entitles the country issuing the degree to access the studies. Ph.D. This admission will not imply, in any case, the homologation of the previous degree or recognition for purposes other than those of access to these teachings.
