Physics 3340/4430, Advanced Lab, covers aspects of experimental optics (Gaussian beams, polarization, diffraction, Fourier optics, interferometry) and modern physics (scanning tunneling microscopy, NMR, Doppler-free spectroscopy). The course places a significant emphasis on developing, testing, and refining of models; experimental design; communication; measurement and automation (using LabVIEW); and data analysis (using Mathematica).
