This course facilitates students' understanding of principles and methods of advanced observation techniques which constitute important bases in the wide area in physics as well as presentation skills.
In this lecture, each student sets up various measurement systems, and prepare sample materials, and actually detects the signals from nature and the responses from nature to the applied excitation. Through these experiences, each student asks not only to acquire the advanced observation techniques, but also to enjoy the experiments on the physics.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
1. Acquire the advanced experimental techniques for the research on physics.
2. Acquire the ability to capture the essence of the observed phenomena and to find essential issues to be solved based on the examination of experimental results.
3. Acquire the skills to make a presentation that other people can easily understand
Mössbauer effect, radiation, ion trap, X-ray diffraction, laser, time resolved measurements, superconductor， superfluid, ferroelectrics, plasma
|Intercultural skills||✔ Communication skills||✔ Specialist skills||Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
Following the guidance, each student selects 3 experimental subjects among available 12 experimental subjects. Students perform laboratory experiments on each subject for four course hours in the afternoon and due to submit their own experimental report before the prescribed deadline. For the final subject, students will be asked to make a presentation about the experiment's contents.
|Course schedule||Required learning|
|Class 1||Each student performs several laboratory experiments among the following subjects. Each experiment on a subject completes four course hours in the afternoon. 1. Mössbauer effect 2. β-ray spectrometer 3. plastic scintillators and signal processing of high frequency pulses 4. ion trap 5. α-ray 6. X-ray diffraction 7. dye lasers 8. time resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy 9. ferroelectricity and computer-aided measurements 10. high-Tc superconductors 11. superfluid and ultrasonic wave 12. carrier transport in semiconductors||Explain the physics which dominates the phenomena observed in the experimental subjects you have selected and the principles and method of the observation techniques used in them.|
A textbook issued by staffs in the Physics Department will be given. Some other books may also be used when necessary.
Based on attendances (including that to the Guidance), discussions and submitted reports, and presentations.
Classes, exercises and basic physics experiments held until the second quarter of the third year for Physics Course students are recommended to be studied before taking this course.
Consult the course instructors if you wish to register without attending the guidance.
