Advanced Lab Course

Our Advanced Lab course (PHYS 4430) includes a variety of guided modern physics labs, including a magneto-optic trap for atoms, a muon lifetime experiment, various optics labs, and others. Additionally, the course includes a five-week student designed project. The course learning goals were developed through a faculty consensus process. The original detailed goals, as defined in 2011, can be found below under "Related Files."
