PHYS 3310

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

This is a laboratory course exploring quantum physics and electrodynamics.  Students select 3 labs from approximately 15 available labs that are well-matched to the content of the 3000-level core physics courses for sophomores and juniors, particularly PHYS 3316, PHYS 3317, PHYS 3323, and PHYS 3327. Helps develop a strong physical understanding of the theoretical concepts taught in these core courses.  Emphasis is on using the experiments as tools to illuminate underlying physical principles, integrating physics knowledge accumulated in an uncorrelated way from many courses, and learning good experimental practice.

When Offered Spring.

Permission Note Enrollment limited.
Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: PHYS 2208 or PHYS 2214 or PHYS 2218.

Distribution Category (PBS-AS)

Comments Time conflicts with other courses may be readily resolved by working with the instructor well before registration. PHYS 3330 provides a similar experience, but with a focus on optics experiments.
