Graduate Courses (Non-Credit)
Electronics Workshop Level 1
Introduction to active electronic circuitry combined with through-hole and surface-mount soldering training.
In this course the student will build and take away a single channel data acquisition system that measures ambient temperature. As well as developing their soldering skills students will understand how their boards work and know how to modify and adapt them for their own research needs.
Number of Sessions : 4 (3 hours each)
Introduction to LabVIEW
Six hour hands-on introduction to LabVIEW programming
LabVIEW is a graphical programming environment used extensively at the University and in Physics as both a research and teaching tool. The goal of this class is to become comfortable with the LabVIEW programming environment and to learn how to create LabVIEW applications. Experience in a computer programming language is helpful though no prior knowledge of LabVIEW is required.
Number of Sessions : 2 (3 hours each)
Noise Reduction Techniques
Making your Data Stand Out
For those who want to reduce the amount of noise in their apparatus and data. Math is kept to a minimum. Instead we focus on practical principals and techniques to reduce system noise and maximize your signal to noise ratio (SNR) at the system level.
Number of Sessions : 1 (1.5 hours)
