402-0210-MSLProseminar Theoretical Physics Information Restricted registration - show details
Limited number of participants.
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.
ObjectiveThe goals of the proseminar are four-fold:
i) to expand your knowledge of theoretical physics;
ii) to learn how to give a professional presentation;
iii) to learn how to write a scientific report; and
(iv) to take part in scientific discussions.
402-0217-MSLSemester Project in Theoretical Physics Restricted registration - show details W8 credits15ASupervisors
AbstractThis course unit is an alternative if no suitable "Proseminar Theoretical Physics" is available of if the proseminar is already overbooked.
ObjectiveThe goals of the proseminar are four-fold:
i) to expand your knowledge of theoretical physics;
ii) to learn how to give a professional presentation;
iii) to learn how to write a scientific report; and
(iv) to take part in scientific discussions.
402-0215-MSLExperimental Semester Project in Physics Information Restricted registration - show details W8 credits15ASupervisors
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.
Objective- conduct a project in a research laboratory,
- discuss their experimental results and conclusions in a team,
- present their experimental findings in written and oral form.
402-0717-MSLParticle Physics at CERN Information Restricted registration - show details W8 credits15PW. 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 the needed skills to, and perform a small particle physics experiment: setup, problem solving, data taking, analysis, interpretation and presentation in a written report of publication quality.

402-0719-MSLParticle Physics at PSI (Paul Scherrer Institute) Restricted registration - show details W8 credits15PA. Soter, A. S. Antognini
AbstractDuring semester breaks in Summer 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.
