PHYS 3310 - Experiments in Quantum Physics and Electrodynamics

Spring. 3 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: PHYS 2208  or PHYS 2214  or PHYS 2218 . Enrollment limited. Time conflicts with other courses may be readily resolved by working with the instructor well before registration. PHYS 3330  provides a similar experience, but with a focus on optics experiments.


This is a laboratory course exploring quantum physics and electrodynamics.  Students select 3 labs from approximately 15 available labs that are well-matched to the content of the 3000-level core physics courses for sophomores and juniors, particularly PHYS 3316 , PHYS 3317 , PHYS 3323 , and PHYS 3327 . Helps develop a strong physical understanding of the theoretical concepts taught in these core courses.  Emphasis is on using the experiments as tools to illuminate underlying physical principles, integrating physics knowledge accumulated in an uncorrelated way from many courses, and learning good experimental practice.
