Responsible coordinator of the module PH0030 in the version of SS 2011 was Martin Stutzmann.

Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions

Content

Advanced experiments dealing with different topics from experimental physics are carried out. The subjects of the experiments correspond to the research areas of the physics department institutes. There are no thematic restrictions in choosing the lab course experiments.

Learning Outcome

After the successful participation in the module the student is able to:

  • prepare self-dependently for a scientific experiment as far as possible
  • operate under guidance a complex experimental setup and carry out a scientific experiment
  • record all important data during measurement
  • evaluate the obtained data and write a scientific report

Learning and Teaching Methods

The lab course is carried out in groups of maximum 3 participants. The groups are working self-dependently as far as possible. A supervisor supports the group in case that questions or problems arise.

Media

lab course experiments

data acquisition (manual and / or computer-assisted)

Literature

experiment manuals and continuative literature (denoted in the manual)

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

Altogether 6 credits have to be achieved from the catalogue of advanced lab course experiments. For each successfully completed experiment one credit is recorded (for some experiments two credits are recorded).

For the successful completion of an advanced lab course experiment following parts have to be passed:

  • introductory discussion with the experiment supervisor, a preparation for the experiment has to be proved
  • experimentation and recording experimental data
  • preparation of a written lab report
  • concluding oral discussion

 

Exam Repetition

There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
