Stage 2 Laboratory exercises

Instructions: Carefully read and understand the lab manual before attending the lab. Answer the preparatory questions. Read the articles that each lab manual refers to. Each lab will start with a short exam where you will present the answers to the preparatory questions. The labs will start in the small meeting rooms (Gamma, Sigma or Lambda) at Solid State Physics.

Emails will be sent for each lab with links to Doodle polls so that you can sign up.

 

Purpose: learn how to use important tools; give hands-on experience; preparation for project work.
Organization: Three to four students will participate in each lab event. Each lab is up to four hours.
To sign up for the labs – Doodle links will be distributed by email. If your preferred time is already booked, contact the other students and try to exchange your time slots. If no time is available, contact the lab teacher to make arrangements.
