Learning activities and teaching methods
Demonstration, Laboratory, Work activities (workshops)
  • Preparation for classes - 16 hours per semester
  • Class attendance - 16 hours per semester
  • Semestral paper - 40 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
Physics Laboratory Work complementing lectures of Physics IV for Combined Studies.
Students intensify their knowledge of atomic and nuclear physics, verify basic principles of quantum mechanics and atomic and nuclear physics and test measuring methods of physics by their own work experience.
Basic knowledge of Physics IV

Assessment methods and criteria
Development of laboratory protocols

Radiation safety training (the training is held every year before the beginning of the course, it is mandatory and students cannot participate in the course without the safety training) For successful passing of the course the student has to perform eight experiments and elaborate eight protocols. The minimal requirements for the protocols are available on e-learning web pages.
