Anderson Hall 329 / Anderson Hall 035

Synonym: 65145

Jay D Tasson, Marty Baylor

An elementary but analytical introduction to the physics of atoms and nuclei. Topics include the particle aspects of electromagnetic radiation, an introduction to quantum mechanics, the wave aspects of material particles, the structure of atoms, X-ray and optical spectra, instruments of nuclear and particle physics, nuclear structure and elementary particles. One laboratory per week.

Prerequisite: Physics 143, 144 or 151

PHYS 344.00 Classical and Quantum Optics 6 credits

Open: Size: 24, Registered: 12, Waitlist: 0

Anderson Hall 036

Synonym: 65367

Marty Baylor

A junior/senior level course in classical and quantum optics. Includes the phenomena of interference, diffraction and coherence and quantum optical applications, such as unique statistical states of light or the operation of a laser. Modern applications of these areas are studied through such topics as fiber optics telecommunication, optical data storage, or manipulation of atoms by light.

Prerequisite: Physics 235 and Mathematics 232

PHYS 345.00 Advanced Optics 2 credits

Open: Size: 12, Registered: 8, Waitlist: 0

Anderson Hall 034

Synonym: 65368

Marty Baylor

This is a laboratory course that will serve as a follow-up to Physics 344, Classical and Quantum Optics. Students will conduct a number of experiments pertaining to optical phenomena. The experiments will display effects pertaining to classical, quantum, and non-linear optics. The lab will take place once a week for four hours each session.

Prerequisite: Corequisite Physics 344 or permission of the instructor

PHYS 400.00 Integrative Exercise 3-6 credits, S/CR/NC only

Open: Size: 4, Registered: 1, Waitlist: 0

Synonym: 65954

Marty Baylor

An extensive study of a specific topic in physics, culminating in a 60-minute presentation during winter or spring term and a 7500 word paper. Students may arrange to complete the bulk of their work during winter or spring term (Physics 400, 6 credits), or divide their effort between terms (Physics 400, winter, 3 credits; Physics 400, spring, 3 credits).
