Syllabus
Prerequisites: Laboratory courses of previous years and basic skills in optics and electronics
Target skills and knowledge: Capability of design and realize an experimental setup. Data analysis skills and capability of identify possible systematic errors. Capability of exploiting formerly acquired knowledge to provide a reliable measure of a physical quantity.
Examination methods: Written report and oral exam.
Assessment criteria: Independence in the realization of the experiment and capability of analyze critically the obtained results. Original 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.
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 people and will be asked to realize from the very beginning a physics experiment chosen among the following areas: electronics, optics, particle physics, nuclear physics and solid state physics. A few frontal lessons devoted to the general explanation of some basic experimental techniques will be also given.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Notes written by the professors of the course downloadable from the web.
Textbooks (and optional supplementary readings)
