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. The choice of lab course experiments is only restricted insofar as 4 credits have to stem from experiments which are allocated to the respective major field of study of the master course.

Learning Outcome

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

  • prepare self-dependently for a scientific experiment
  • operate 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 which fulfils the fundamental requirements of a scientific publication

Preconditions

No prerequisites which exceed the admission to the master course

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, at least 4 of these have to stem from experiments which are allocated to the respective major field of study of the master course. 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.

Current exam dates

Currently TUMonline lists the following exam dates. In addition to the general information above please refer to the current information given during the course.
