Preparatory Course to the Advanced Master Laboratory

(last update 19.05.2019)

This course is intended for Master Students who have not passed extended introductory courses to laboratory experiments during their Bachelor studies.

In this case we strongly recommend the course before entering the Advanced Master Laboratory.

Please note that at FU the Physics Bachelor comprises three basic and one intermediate laboratory course (16 + 8 ECTS).

Depending on your experience, you can choose between:

  1. Two experiments in the Basic Lab (Electric Signals or Optics) and three experiments in the Intermediate Lab (Zeeman effect, Scanning tunneling microscopy, Rayleigh scattering)
  2. Four experiments in the Intermediate Lab (HeNe-Laser, Zeeman effect, Scanning tunneling microscopy, Rayleigh scattering)

An Introduction to this laboratory course you can find here.
