Learning objectives
1. Esperienza diretta da parte dello studente della fenomenologia fisica in campo ottico
2. Apprendimento della fisica alla base degli esperimenti
3. Apprendimento dei principali metodi di misura (ad esempio misura diretta e indiretta di una grandezza fisica, metodo dello zero, metodo induttivo)
4. Familiarità con la strumentazione di base utilizzata in ottica (lenti, reticoli, prismi, laser, fenditure, banchi ottici)
5. Capacità di scelta delle condizioni sperimentali opportune per misurare una certa grandezza fisica con un dato apparato sperimentale
6. Capacità di approccio sperimentale ad un problema fisico: lo studente si confronta con sistemi reali ed impara a valutare entro quali limiti il comportamento di questi ultimi è descrivibile con modelli basati su sistemi ideali
7. Capacità di effettuare la taratura di un apparato
8. Capacità di risolvere semplici circuiti lineari usando la trasformata di Fourier o di Laplace
9. Capacità di calcolare e misurare la risposta di un circuito semplice a un segnale di ingresso tipico (scalino, impulso, sinusoide) utilizzando strumentazione da laboratorio
10. Apprendimento del concetto di retroazione (negativa e positiva) e principali utilizzi nei circuiti elettronici
11. Apprendimento del concetto di impedenza di ingresso e uscita di un circuito
12. Capacità di realizzare semplici circuiti utilizzando amplificatori operazionali e componenti passivi, quali amplificatori, filtri attivi, multivibratori
13. Comprensione del meccanismo trasmissivo dei segnali in cavi coassiali e del ruolo delle resistenze di terminazione
14. Capacità di lavorare in gruppo
15. Capacità di evidenziare fenomeni fisici analoghi in esperimenti diversi
16. Capacità di analizzare criticamente i dati raccolti
17. Capacità di stendere una relazione scientifica sull'attività svolta in laboratorio

CORSO A

Responsible
Lesson period
year
Unita' didattica 1: Ottica e Fisica Moderna
Course syllabus
LABORATORY OF OPTICS, MODERN PHYSICS AND ELECTRONICS

The course is divided into two parts: the first is dedicated to the study of optics and modern physics and the second to electronics.
During the first part some lessons are dedicated to the introduction to the physical phenomena which will be explored during the laboratory and to some basic explanations about the instrumentation which will be used.
In the laboratory the students have to face with the measurement of some basic optical phenomena and of some fundamental quantity of modern physics.
As an example:
- Use of a Michelson interferometer with laser and incoherent sources
- Determination of the refractive index as a function of the wavelength
- Measurement of the rotation of the polarization plane of sodium light
- Measurement of the ratio charge to mass for the electron
- Measurement of the elementary charge

Unita' didattica 2: Elettronica
Course syllabus
The second part is focused on the basic concepts of electricity and electronics. Many simple experiments will be illustrated and performed on a lesson by lesson basis. All experimental tests are carried out with professional laboratory instruments, including breadboards, operational amplifiers, arbitrary waveform generators and a wide choice of electronic components.
Some of the considered topics are:
- Resistivity of materials, Ohm's law, Kirchoff's laws, Thevenin and Norton equivalent circuits
- Calibration and use of electronic instrumentation (multimeter, oscilloscope, waveform generator)
- Frequency response and transfer function of linear networks
- RC circuits, LC/RLC resonant circuits and impedance concept
- Negative and positive feedback: stable and unstable circuits/systems, like linear amplifiers and Schmitt triggers. Operational amplifiers and their use
- Shielded cables, signal propagation in cables, characteristic impedance of the cable, cable termination
- Electronic noises and pickups (highlights)
