Objectives
THE TEACHING IS INTENDED TO PROVIDE THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE IN DIFFERENT AREAS OF EXPERIMENTAL PHYSICS. ASPECTS OF PHYSICS OF MATTER, NANOTECHNOLOGIES, NUCLEAR AND HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS, GEOPHYSICS AND ASTROPHYSICS ARE ANALYZED.
THE TEACHING HAS THE PURPOSE OF PROVIDING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING ABILITY IN THE FIELD DESCRIBED ABOVE, WITH A DEEPER KNOWLEDGE OF ONE FIELD IN PARTICULAR, AND TO GIVE THE STUDENT THE NECESSARY MEANS FOR THE DESIGN, EXECUTION AND ANALYSIS OF MODERN PHYSICS EXPERIENCES.
THE TEACHING AIMS AT MAKING THE STUDENT CAPABLE TO APPLY THE ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE AND TO UTILIZE THE VARIOUS TECHNIQUES IN USE IN AN EXPERIMENTAL LABORATORY FOR DEVICES REALIZATION, MEASUREMENT AND DATA ANALYSIS.
Prerequisites
THE KNOWLEDGE OF ELEMENTS OF SOLID STATE PHYSYCS, RADIATION MATTER INTERACTION, NUMERICAL METHODS, GEOPHYSICS, OPTICS, SEMICONDUCTORS PHYSICS, ATOMIC AND MOLECULAR SPECTROSCOPY IS REQUIRED.
Contents
EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES FOR THE STUDY OF ELECTRIC TRANSPORT IN THIN FILM MATERIALS. (12 HOURS)
EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES FOR THE FABRICATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF NANOSTRUCTURED MATERIALS. (12 HOURS)
CHARACTERISTICS OF DETECTORS USED FOR THE STUDY OF PARTICLE PHYSICS AND EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES FOR PARTICLE DETECTION. (12 HOURS)
EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES FOR GEOPHYSICAL MEASUREMENTS AND DATA ANALISYS. (12 HOURS)
EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES FOR THE ASTRONOMICAL OBSERVATIONS: ASTROMETRY, PHOTOMETRY AND SPECTROSCOPY (12 HOURS)
LABORATORY ACTIVITIES.:
ACQUISITION OF EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES, DESIGN AND REALIZATION OF A MODER PHYSICS EXPERIMENT. (84 HOURS)
Teaching Methods
THE TEACHING IS ORGANISED AS FOLLOWS:
•LESSONS IN CLASSROOM ON ALL THE TOPICS OF THE TEACHING (3 CFU);
•EXERCISES IN THE LABORATORY TO EXECUTE LABORATORY ACTIVITIES IN CONNECTION WITH ONE OF THE TOPICS DISCUSSED (9 CFU)
STUDENTS WILL BE ORGANIZED INTO GROUPS (2-3 STUDENTS EACH). AT THE END OF EVERY ACTIVITY THE GROUP MUST SUBMIT A REPORT ON THE EXPERIENCE MADE DESCRIBING OBJECTIVES, METHODOLOGY AND EXPERIMENTAL APPARATUS, DATA COLLECTED AND RELATED ANALYSIS.
Verification of learning
THE EXAM CONSISTS OF AN ORAL TEST WHERE:
•THE TOPICS OF COURSE ARE DISCUSSED, TO VERIFY THE ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND AND CREATE LINKS AMONGST THE VARIOUS TOPICS COVERED DURING THE LESSONS;
•THE REPORTS OF THE LABORATORY ACTIVITIES ARE DISCUSSED, TO VERIFY THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES AND THE SKILLS TO MAKE SIMPLE EXPERIMENTS.
THE EVALUATION WILL TAKE ACCOUNT OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE PRESENTATION, OF THE COMPLETENESS AND ACCURACY OF THE ANSWERS, AS WELL AS OF THE CLARITY IN THE PRESENTATION OF THE TEACHING TOPICS AND OF THE LABORATORY ACTIVITIES.
THE MINIMUM LEVEL OF EVALUATION (18) IS ASSIGNED WHEN THE STUDENT DEMONSTRATES UNCERTAINTIES IN EXPLAINING THE TEACHING TOPICS AND IN MASTERING THE EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES USED.
THE MAXIMUM LEVEL (30) IS ASSIGNED WHEN THE STUDENT DEMONSTRATES A COMPLETE AND IN-DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF THE TOPICS COVERED AND THE EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES USED.
“CUM LAUDE” IS GIVEN WHEN THE CANDIDATE DEMONSTRATES SIGNIFICANT MASTERY OF THE THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL CONTENTS OF THE COURSE AND ALSO SHOWS THAT HE IS ABLE TO PRESENT THE TOPICS WITH LANGUAGE AND AUTONOMOUS PROCESSING SKILLS.
