PHYS 8735 Techniques of Experimental Physics I (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course will give a general introduction to a subset of experimental techniques widely used and frequently encountered in modern condensed matter physics research. Many of these techniques are based on the use of synchrotron radiation (x-rays), electrons, laser or microwave as the incident excitations, each capable of providing unique information about specific aspects of the usually complex experimental subjects from a complementary perspective. Both theoretical and experimental contents of these and other techniques will be accessed through lectures in class, hands-on demonstrations and collaborative experimental projects in lab.
