Objectives of Programme's Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the fundamentals
    • Have a good knowledge and understanding of the basic principles of physics and of the role of models and theories.
    • Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of mathematics suitable for the study of physics, and be able to use this mathematics in applications in the field of physics
    • Undertake further study having already acquired and enhanced the necessary learning skills
  • Collaborate and work in a team
    • Have developed practical skills in physics through practical sessions in the laboratory, including error analysis and critical evaluation of experimental results, and sessions during which they have worked individually and in groups.
  • Have a rigorous scientific approach
    • Solve simple problems in the context of physics by identifying their basic aspects and by using both appropriate theoretical and experimental methods

Learning Outcomes of UE

At the end of the instruction, the students will be able to :
- understand and apply the basis principles of classical physics and of quantum theory
- develop the theory from observations in a logical and rigorous way
- establish logical links between the first year instructions and the more advanced  and more specific courses of the second  year

Content of UE

- Frontiers of the classical physics : main experiments
- Classical light sources (dipoles, Maxwell's equations in vaccuum, Hertz's dipole)
- LASER light
- Wave behaviour of matter
- Introduction to quantum mechanics

Prior Experience

Electricity and magnetism
Wave optics
