Experimental Physics

In Physics 322 students work independently on three experiments, each lasting roughly one month. In addition to keeping a detailed lab notebook, one written report and one oral presentation are required by the end of the term. Recent projects include the following:

1. Cavendish Balance

2. Black Body Radiation

3. Brownian Motion

4. X-ray Diffraction

5. Surface Plasmon Resonances

6. Electronic Speckle Pattern Interferometry

7. Thermoelectric Effect

8. Faraday Effect

9. Helium-Neon Laser Modes
