Physics Laboratory C is a compulsory course
for third year physics students.
The laboratory is located in Shenkar (physics)
building, ground floor.
The purpose of LabC is to prepare students to
future research work.
LabC covers all areas of physics studied at TAU:
elementary particles, nuclear physics, condensed
matter physics, laser physics, medical physics
LabC is an independent course, and is not
supposed to complement other courses. Most of the
material will be new to the students, requiring
an extensive preparation effort before starting the
experimental work at the laboratory.
The experiments are performed by students in
pairs, with as little help from tutors as
Each experiment takes 4 teaching weeks, 1 week
for preparation, 2 weeks for performance and 1 week
for data analysis and writing the report.
To accomodate all students, there are two cycles
(A and B) shifted by two weeks. Due to the large
number of students and the limited number of
experiments and instructors, the time table is very
