Content
This unit is to introduce advanced experimental physics techniques. The unit comprises lecture modules, with 18 lectures being compulsory and the remaining 18 lectures being drawn from a selection of elective modules and experimental projects. The unit covers material drawn from a range of topics in experimental physics, including: (1) Quantum measurement; (2) Optomechanics; and (3) frequency and quantum metrology.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) explain precision measurement and quantum measurement principles and techniques.; (2) apply quantum measurement techniques in experiment design and implementation.; and (3) analyse and interpret experimental results.
Assessment
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) assignments; (2) oral presentation; and (3) project report. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.

  • The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
  • All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
  • Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available via the Booktopia Textbook Finder, which has the functionality to search by course code, course, ISBN and title, and may also be posted or available at the appropriate school's administrative offices. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
