Advanced Physics Laboratory
The advanced laboratory course, taken by third year physics students, is one of the highlights of the physics undergraduate studies. The main goal of the course is to prepare the students for independent and creative experimental research work.
The course covers a wide range of advanced topics, all relevant to the fields of active research in the School of Physics and Astronomy of Tel Aviv University.
Fundamental particles, high energy physics and nuclear physics
Solid state physics, optics and lasers
Astronomy and astrophysics
In the experiments available in the lab, the students are exposed to advanced subjects in physics, many of which they encounter for the first time in their undergraduate studies. Furthermore, the students gain experience in working with modern lab equipment and measurement methods that they have not practiced during the 1st and 2nd years. This challenge requires comprehensive preparation prior to the beginning of the experiment.
Every experiment is supervised by a graduate student instructor who assists the students in defining the experiment goals and guides them towards the optimal methods for achieving them.
