Responsible coordinator of the module PH1420 is Laura Fabbietti.

Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions

Content

For preparation of your Bachelor or Master thesis you get a comprehensive introduction to sensors,
data acquisition and control in experimental physics. The seminar includes several lab courses and
individual small group projects for you to solve. After an introduction to graphical programming with
LabView you will master small programs for measurement and control.

Learning Outcome

After successful participation in the module the student can apply the basic methods of
measurement, data acquisition and control to solve a wide range of experimental tasks. They have
learned about graphical programming with LabView and the usage of various functionalities as well
as experimental techniques in different fields of research.

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

In the course of the seminar each student individually prepares a talk on a topic of current research. Based on this talk the learning outcome is tested.

Condensed Matter

When atoms interact things can get interesting. Fundamental research on the underlying properties of materials and nanostructures and exploration of the potential they provide for applications.

Nuclei, Particles, Astrophysics

A journey of discovery to understanding our world at the subatomic scale, from the nuclei inside atoms down to the most elementary building blocks of matter. Are you ready for the adventure?

Biophysics

Biological systems, from proteins to living cells and organisms, obey physical principles. Our research groups in biophysics shape one of Germany's largest scientific clusters in this area.
