In this laboratory, students investigate a variety of physical phenomena relevant to the level I syllabus, and study some of their applications. A range of experimental techniques is introduced, allowing students develop skills that will be helpful in future work, for example project work in years 2 and 3. Topics covered include: computer-based data acquisition and analysis, component-level analogue and digital electronics, physical optics and spectroscopy, and other topics relevant to the level I syllabus.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the module the student should be able to:
1 Demonstrate skills in the building and using of electronic and optical systems.
2 Apply computer-based data acquisition and analysis to the recording and interpreting of physical phenomena.
