PHY 415 - EXPERIMENTAL PHYSICS I
This laboratory course consists of a group of experiments drawn from various topics in electronics such as the characteristics of FETS, single stage common emitter, common base and common collector amplifiers, common source and common drain FET amplifiers. Multi stage amplifiers using BJTS and FETS. Construction and measurement of the characteristics of phase shift, wien bridge, colpitts, Hartley and tuned collector oscillators. Stabilized power supplies using BJTS and OP amp as the control element. Characteristics and uses of OP amps as an inverter, summer, differentiator and integrator. Characteristics and uses of logic gates as counters and registers. Construction of weighted resistor and R-2R digital to analogue converters. Flash, dual slope, counter type and ramp analogue to digital converters.
