[summary] The lecture will be given for the basics of the physics experiments. The topics will be, how to write experiment's note, writing a good report, processing and statistics of data, optical measurements, technique for the vacuum operation, the particle detection techniques, circuit board works.
[aim] These knowledges will become useful when taking the 'Experiments in Physics A' and 'Experiments in Physics B'.
[the goal] To learn the basic knowledge and techniques for the physics experiment, and the main principles behind.
In order to observe and verify the law of the nature, the students need to learn experimental techniques as well as the
documenting skills and interpretation of the experimental procedures, and the results.
Also the understanding of experiment itself and the data processing techniques are important.
In this class, the student can learn these basics of the physics experiment.
