3. Course contents *

The first 2 blocks of each 5 sessions contain important physics experiments of the 20th century. Per block the student chooses one topic (e.g. “the electron”, “energy levels”, “waves and radiation”, etc) and studies this by means of different experiments. The third, short, block deals with AC-current circuits, again with large freedom for the students in the approach of the experiments. In the last block the students develop their own computer regulated experiments using Labview programming.
