•Course Purpose
We provide a minimum set of basic experiments on physics which is necessary to learn before entering each subject of research. Through the experiments, students are to acquire not only basic experimental techniques but also attitudes toward the experimental research and to obtain total power of both knowledge and experimental technique for research of applied physics.

•Prerequisite Subjects

•Course Topics
After the orientation and a lecture on data processing, 2-3 students are grouped together to make 10 experiments below every week. Lectures on how to make reports and presentations are made. At the last week, students make their oral presentations. Tutorials on each experiment are made by assistant professors.
1.Optical fibers
2.The Stefan-Boltzmann's 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.Experiments on vacuum
10.Sound-velocity of ultrasonic pulse

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

•Additional Reading

•Grade Assessment
Evaluated by the report on data processing and ten reports on each subject and the oral presentation. Record more than 60/100 is qualified. Delay of report submission is marked.
