Nagoya University, School of Engineering Lecture information system (SYLLABUS)

Applied Physics Laboratory I(1.0 credits)

Course Type:Basic Specialized Courses
Class Format:Experiment
Course Name : Fundamental and Applied Physics
Starts 1 : 2 Spring Semester
Elective/Compulsory : Compulsory
Lecturer : Faculty of Fundamental and Applied Physics  

•Course Purpose
The course consists of a minimum set of basic experiments on applied physics. Through the experiments, students acquire basic experimental techniques and deepen understandings of the experimental research.

•Prerequisite Subjects

•Course Topics
Following the orientation and a first lecture on experimental data processing, students will be divided in groups of two or three students and conduct one experiment per week on the topics listed below. Assistant professors offer tutorials for each experiment. At the final week, students make their oral presentations about the last experiment.
1. Optical fibers,
2. Stefan-Boltzmann law,
3. Digital circuits,
4. Analog circuits,
5. Planck's constant
6. Elementary electric charge,
7. Heat capacity of solids,
8. Electric properties of metals and semiconductors,
9. Vacuum,
10. Sound-velocity of ultrasonic pulse

Basic Experiments in Applied Physics (edited by Dept. of Appl. Phys., Nagoya Univ.).
The textbook is distributed in the first lecture. Students should bring their own experimental notebook, scientific calculator, and graph paper.

•Additional Reading

•Grade Assessment
Grades will be based on the attendance on the experiments, the report on data processing, all the reports on individual topics, and the presentation. Students must obtain a score of 60/100 or higher to pass the course. Delayed submission of reports will affect the applicable grade.
