Ph 316 Experimental Physics III

Students will perform several experiments illustrating quantum and relativistic effects. The emphasis will be on computer-assisted experimentation and data analysis. Experiments will include instrumentation and counting in nuclear physics, measurement of band gap in semiconductors, measurement of ratio of electron charge to electron mass, speed of light, Frank-Hertz experiment and electron spin resonance. Two 3-hour laboratory periods. This is the third course in a sequence of three: Ph 314, Ph 315 and Ph 316. Expected preparation: Ph 311.
