frontiers in Experimental physics
|ICRAR Node||University of Western Australia|
|Unit Code||Enrol at UWA in PHYS4020|
|Offering||S1 2022 (A module on astro-instrumentation will not be offered in 2022)|
|Content||This unit builds on a solid foundation of experimental physics established in an undergraduate Physics major. The unit comprises lecture modules, drawn from a selection of elective modules and experimental projects, including (1) Experimental techniques and noise analysis; (2) Experimental data analysis and simulation; (3) low temperature techniques (4) Experimental astro-instrumentation & (5) Experimental gravitational waves instrumentation.|
|Learning Outcomes||Students are able to (1) apply experimental measurement methods and techniques in different physics disciplines; (2) communicate the importance of noise analysis, error analysis and calibration in evaluate experimental results; (3) use computational methods to analyse experimental data; and (4) design experiments using computer models or simulations.|
|Assessment||Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) assignments; (2) oral presentation; and (3) final report. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Further information will be available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
