PHY 660 - Electronics

[4 credit(s)]
Topics covered include: AC and DC circuit analysis; steady and transient states; diodes and their application for rectification and voltage regulation; transistors (bipolar junction, FET and MOSFET) and amplifying and switching circuits; operational amplifiers; microprocessors, digital electronics and sequential logic circuits; noise (thermal, shot) analysis and management; advance signal processing techniques such as FFT. During lab sessions the students will become acquainted with basic electronic instrumentation (analog and digital meters, resistance and capacitance bridges, power supplies, signal generators, and oscilloscopes) and various sensors and transducers. Also, a particular emphasis will be placed on introducing the students to the basics of data acquisition and computer interfacing hardware and software including specialized tools, such as LabView.
