PHYS 275: Experimental Physics Laboratory
This course will focus on the experiments of modern physics, that is, those experiments that were crucial in the development of quantum physics since the beginning of the 20th century. Topics will include blackbody radiation, the photoelectric effect, electron diffraction and atomic spectra. Our approach will be to examine the classic and modern theoretical descriptions, then compare the predictions of these models with measrements.
