||Selected topics from the following :
a) Vacuum Techniques : Production and measurement of vacuum, different
typesof vacuum systems and gauges, their working and limitations, leak
detection, techniques for production of ultra high vacuum. The laboratory
work will consist of experiments with a vacuum system and assembling of a
b) Electronics : Measurement techniques in electronics, use of different
measuring devices, their scope and limitations. Power supplies,
amplifiers, pulse techniques and high frequency techniques. Laboratory
work will include handling different types of electronic measuring
instruments, study of certain readymade units, design, fabrication and
testing of some circuits.
c) Detectors : Study of different types of detectors, photographic
detectors, microwave detectors, optical detectors, X ray detectors and
nuclear radiation detectors. The laboratory work will include experiments
which make use of different types of detectors.
d) Work Experience: Design and fabrication of simple pieces of equipments
required in Physics laboratory. The students are expected to acquire
familiarity with use of common machine tools like use of lathes, milling
machines, drilling machines etc.
