402-0210-BSLProseminar Theoretical Physics Information Restricted registration - show details
The number of participants is limited.
W8 credits4SSupervisors
AbstractA guided self-study of original papers and of advanced textbooks in theoretical physics. Within the general topic, determined each semester, participants give a presentation on a particular subject and deliver a written report.
402-0217-BSLSemester Project in Theoretical Physics Restricted registration - show details W8 credits18ASupervisors
AbstractThis course unit is an alternative if no suitable "Proseminar Theoretical Physics" is available of if the proseminar is already overbooked.
Prerequisites / NoticeDie Leistungskontrolle erfolgt aufgrund eines oder mehrerer schriftlicher Berichte bzw. einer schriftlichen Arbeit. Vorträge können ein zusätzlicher Bestandteil der Leistungskontrolle sein.
402-0215-BSLExperimental Semester Project in Physics Information Restricted registration - show details W8 credits18ASupervisors
AbstractThe aim of the project is to give the student experience in working in a research environment, carrying out physics experiments, analysing and interpreting the resulting data.
Prerequisites / NoticeDie Leistungskontrolle erfolgt aufgrund eines oder mehrerer schriftlicher Berichte bzw. einer schriftlichen Arbeit.
402-0719-BSLParticle Physics at PSI (Paul Scherrer Institute) Restricted registration - show details W8 credits18PC. Grab
AbstractDuring semester breaks 6-12 students stay for 3 weeks at PSI and participate in a hands-on course on experimental particle physics. A small real experiment is performed in common, including apparatus design, construction, running and data analysis. The course includes some lectures, but the focus lies on the practical aspects of experimenting.
ObjectiveStudents learn all the different steps it takes to perform a complete particle physics experiment in a small team. They acquire skills to do this themselves in the team, including design, construction, data taking and data analysis.
402-0717-BSLParticle Physics at CERN Information Restricted registration - show details W8 credits18PF. Nessi-Tedaldi, W. Lustermann
AbstractDuring the semester break participating students stay for 4 weeks at CERN and perform experimental work relevant to our particle physics projects. Dates to be agreed upon.
ObjectiveStudents learn, by doing, the needed skills to perform a small particle physics experiment: setup, problem solving, data taking, analysis, interpretation and presentation in a written report of publication quality.

W8 credits17PM. Donegà, S. Gvasaliya
AbstractThis laboratory course provides basic training of experimental skills. These are experimental design, implementation, measurement, data analysis and interpretation, as well as error analysis. The experimental work has to be complemented by a concise written report, which trains the scientific writing skills.
Manuals for the individual experiments are available in English.
ObjectiveStudents learn to independently perform advanced experiments and document them scientifically correct.

Students are required to attend the safety lecture on the first day of the course and sign an "Attendance confirmation sheet". Students will be asked to present their sheet to access the laboratory rooms and perform the experiments.

The following aspects are emphasized:
- understanding complicated physical phenomena
- structured approach to experiments with complex instruments
- various practical aspects of experimenting and determining uncertainties
- learning the relevant statistical methods for data analysis
- interpretation of measurements and uncertainties
- describing the experiments and the results in a scientifically proper manner, in direct analogy to publishing
- ethical aspects of experimental research and scientific communication
ContentWe offer experiments covering the following topics:
Basic topics from mechanics, optics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism and electronics; as well as central topics from nuclear and particle physics, quantum electronics, quantum mechanics, solid state physics and astrophysics.
Lecture notesInstructions for experiments are available in English.
Prerequisites / NoticeFrom a variety of over 50 experiments, students have to perform 4 experiments covering different topics. The experimental work is complemented by writing a scientific report.
