PHYSICS 105: Intermediate Physics Laboratory I: Analog Electronics

Introductory laboratory electronics, designed for Physics and Engineering Physics majors but open to all students with science or engineering interests in analog circuits, instrumentation and signal processing. The course is focused on laboratory exercises that build skills needed for measurements, including sensors, amplification and filtering, and fundamentals of noise in physical systems. The hands-on lab exercises include DC circuits, RC and diode circuits, applications of operational amplifiers, non-linear circuits and optoelectronics. The class exercises build towards a lock-in amplifier contest where each lab section designs and builds a synchronous detection system to measure a weak optical signal, with opportunities to understand the limits of the design, build improvements and compare results with the other lab sections. The course focuses on practical techniques and insight from the lab exercises, with a goal to prepare undergraduates for laboratory research. [The reason I p more »

[The reason I propose striking ¿uses a minimum of mathematics and analysis¿ is because the definition of ¿minimum¿ is in the eye of the beholder ¿ e.g., many students at Stanford would not consider algebra with complex numbers to be a minimum of mathematics. In any case, this is redundant with the recommended prereqs.] No formal electronics experience is required beyond exposure to concepts from introductory Physics or Engineering courses (Ohm¿s law, charge conservation, physics of capacitors and inductors, etc.). Recommended prerequisite: Physics 43 or 63, or Engineering 40A or 40M.
