PHYS 382 - Advanced Laboratory


This laboratory builds on the skills learned in PHYS 281  and combines experiments from both classical and modern physics. Extensive use of the computer is made in the analysis of data from experiments. Detailed error analysis of each experiment is required. In any given semester the selected topics are drawn from experiments such as gamma detection, Millikan oil drop, alpha spectroscopy, accelerator operation, Cavendish, Rutherford scattering, semiconductors, saturated absorption, spectroscopy, and neutron activation. Two hours of lecture and seven hours of laboratory. Required for physics majors and may be taken more than once for credit.

Credits: 2
Terms Offered: Fall
