Main Page/PHYS 4210/How to Choose Experiments
From Physics Wiki
One of the advantages of the upper-year physics courses is that you can pick and choose which experiments are of particular interest to you. However, there are some experiment which naturally follow from each other.
- The Experiments Coaxial Cable, Optical Fibers, and Waveguides deal with the propagation of electromagnetic radiation across the different regimes of radio frequency, microwave frequency, and optical frequencies.
- The experiment Electron Spin Resonance and Zeeman Effect tie nicely together through the concept of electron spin.
- He-Ne Lasers provides a nice background on Gaussian beam propagation which is expanded upon in the Fourier Optics experiment.
- If you are interested in high-energy physics then Gamma Ray Spectroscopy and Johnson Noise may be of interest.
- If you are interested in atomic physics, then Electron Spin Resonance, Rutherford Scattering II, Zeeman Effect, and Mass Spectrometer would be of interest.
Please choose your experiments thoughtfully to ensure that you will get the most out of your time spent on this course.
