CHEM 7772 Advanced Physical Chemistry/Electronics and Optics (Fall/Spring: 3 )


Course Description

Nearly all parameters we measure in a laboratory (e.g. temperature, density, flow, etc.) are first converted to electrical signals, processed by electronic circuits and devices and then detected and stored by some electrical apparatus. The course is designed to provide a knowledge of electronics. The operation of electrical circuits will be described, and the effect of the electronic processing on the measured parameters will be discussed. The operation of electronic devices such as amplifiers, oscilloscopes, detectors, pulse counters etc. as well as radio and television will be covered. The course will also provide hands-on experience in constructing an amplifying circuit. The course is limited to 12 people and is open to a limited number of undergraduates with the instructor’s permission.
