Course description and aims

[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. This lecture (1-0-0) is prepared for the students who were admitted to the university at 2015 or earlier.

[aim] These knowledges will become useful when taking the 'Experiments in Physics A' and 'Experiments in Physics B'.
In order to provide the proper contents for the two units, together with the Experimental Physics in 3Q, this lecture provide
more practical techniques and more advanced physics principles behind.

Student learning outcomes

[goal] 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 and can apply them for the physics experiments in the next term and onward.

Keywords

Prerequisites (i.e., required knowledge, skills, courses, etc.)

This lecture (1-0-0) is prepared for the students who were admitted on 2015 or earlier, and could be read as two unit (2-0-0) if one took the
Experimental Physics in 3Q. Please be warned that this lecture alone could not be read as the two unit. In order to obtain 2 units with the
lecture in 3Q, this lecture provide more practical techniques and more advanced physics principles behind.
To lecture such contents effectively , the order of lectures will be slightly modified only for 2016.
