An introduction to current physics laboratory techniques, methods and approaches, such as near field optical diffraction, microscopy-based motion analysis, biophysical analysis, and optical spectroscopy. Other topics include laboratory safety; research integrity; scientific literature review; analysis and interpretation of data; and written and oral communication of results. In the second half of the course, students will be expected to carry out research projects under the direction of the instructor. Students will prepare a final written report and give a presentation of their results at an undergraduate conference.
