The two subjects PHYC30014 Laboratory Work A and PHYC30015 Laboratory Work B are offered sequentially. In both subjects laboratory work draws from a common pool of experiments. Practical experience is available in the following laboratories: nuclear physics, particle physics, diffraction, electronics, atomic physics, optical physics and astronomy. Mechanical workshop experience is also available. In some laboratories individual projects can be selected. PHYC30015 Laboratory Work B offers the possible extension to research project work.
Intended learning outcomes
To challenge students to expand their knowledge of fundamental physics principles and develop their capacity to:
- demonstrate an understanding of a wide variety of advanced experimental and data analysis techniques;
- acquire, analyse and interpret experimental data; and
- write and evaluate scientific and technical reports.
A student who completes this subject should be able to:
- acquire and interpret experimental data and design experimental investigations
- participate as an effective member of a laboratory group.
- think independently and analytically, and direct his or her own learning
- manage time effectively in order to submit assessable work when required.
