PHYS 276: Experimental Physics Laboratory

Prerequisite: PHYS275

Course Description

 This semester we will focus on the procedures, methods, apparatus, and theory of nuclear science, and finish with a field trip to the University of Maryland Nuclear Reactor and Radiation Facilities to carry out an experiment using their research reactor. Students will be expected to maintain a logbook of their progress and results, and write a formal report on the final experiment.
