Welcome to Phys 3330: Electronics for Physical Sciences!

Note; there is an extension until Friday Jan 24, midnight for LSA#2

Week 1, Lab: Electronic Instruments, Jan 14&16

Lectures will be in Duane G140 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1:00-1:50 pm. First laboratory sessions meet in Duane G-230 during the first week of classes, Jan 14 & 16th. In the lecture we will introduce the course and begin discussing the theory behind the labs. In the lab session we will provide you with a laboratory notebook and conduct the first lab, which introduces the oscilloscope, waveform generators, power supplies, and and the electronics breadboards.

Note: Thursday Morning Section

We have opened a new lab section that will meet at 9:00-11:50 am Thursday. Please consider switching to this section!

We have enough room for all studnets but will NOT be running more than 18 student/ section.

About Physics 3330

Electronics for the Physical Sciences provides students with an opportunity to learn about the design, construction, and operation of electronic circuits.

In the first 10 weeks of the course students conduct pre-designed experiments that cover important topics in analog (8-9 weeks) and digital (1-2 weeks) electronics. Before mid-semester, students begin to conceive of independent electronics projects. The projects take up the last 5 weeks of the course. Instructors will make every effort to support original and creative projects. At the end of the semester, students submit a project report and describe their projects to the class in an oral presentation.
