Syllabus
Prerequisites: Laboratory courses of preceding years and basic skills in optics and electronics
Target skills and knowledge: Capability to design and realize independently an experimental setup. Data analysis skills and capability in identifying possible systematic errors.
Capability of exploiting formerly aquired knowledges to provide a reliable measure of a physical quantity.
Examination methods: Written report and oral examination.
Assessment criteria: Independence in the realization of a given experiment and capability of analyzing critically the obtained results.
Orignal solutions providing any improvement to the proposed experiences will be evaluated positively.
Course unit contents: General experimental techniques for the physics laboratory, in particular: electronics, optics, cryogenics and vacuum techniques.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: The course has a strong "hands on" character. The participants will be divided in small groups of 2 - 3 elements and will be asked to realize from the very beginning a physics experiment chosen between the following areas: electronics, optics, particle and nuclear physics and solid state. Few frontal lessons devoted to the general explanation of some basic experimental techniques will also be given.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Notes provided by the Teachers downloadable from the web.
Textbooks (and optional supplementary readings)
