Official Description

Introduces students to the underlying physical principles employed by various devices. As in Physics 524, we will introduce students to a broader spectrum of device principles than they will encounter in their Physics 523 projects. There will be two 50 minute classes each week, split into discussion and laboratory exercises. The list of topics?which is not intended to be exhaustive?will evolve, according to the interests of the class and instructors. Material will be clustered into units of varying duration, as indicated below. The lists of suggested readings and references are advisory; a large amount of material of excellent quality is now available on the worldwide web, particularly on the sites of university courses addressing the topics of each unit. There are no formal prerequisites other than prior completion of a rigorous undergraduate major (or minor) in physics, astronomy, or a related field. Course Information: 2 graduate hours. No professional credit. Prerequisite: Prim
