Overview - Physics (Master) Lab course: Solid state physics

For the term SS 2022 you can register for either the lab course nano electronics or solid state physics. More information can be found under General information labcourse nano electronics and general information lab course solid state physics.

For all participants:

  • The registration for the lab course solid state physics for the term SS 2022 is open from 10.01.2022 until 04.02.2022. (Click here).
  • You can name a preferred partner between 05.02.2022 and 19.02.2022. (link)
  • You can let us know which are your preferred laboratory experiments in Aachen between 14.04.2021 and 21.04.2021 (link). For experiments in Jülich, this is not possible.


Latest news and information for the term SS 2021:

  • Covid-19 Update! The lab-course days at Research Center Jülich will take place online. Day of experiments are announced in the schedule (J-experiments)!
  • Concerning Covid restrictions for experiments at RWTH:
    Experiments will take place in the "virtual mode" in April and May. The experiments L02, L04, L05, L10, L12, M8, M12 will take place in real mode starting in June. Please read and follow the rules: (here)
  • What is an experimental day during the "virtual" mode? (1) All participants stay at home and discuss the experiment with the tutor on a virtual platform (to be announced). This replaces the intro-discussion. Points (0-3) will be given by the tutor. (2) The tutor sends a dataset measured with the setup and explains some details to the group. Videos on moodle will support the understanding of the setup and the measurement procedures. This replaces the execution of the experiment. No points will be given for this part. (3) Based on the sent dataset, the group writes the protocol and sends it via email to the tutor within 2 weeks. Points (0-3) will be given for the protocol. Thus a virtual experiment has a total of 6 points. The maximum achievable number of points will be adapted accordingly. Likely you have questions about this new procedure. These questions will be answered during the introduction course.
  • Introduction to the Aachen experiments will be in April (online on 14.04. from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm see "Introduction to Laboratory Course Solid-State Physics, Nanoelectronics and Quantum Technology" in RWTHonline). During this lecture the laboratory experiments Lxx will be introduced and you choose your preference right afterwards.
  • Experiments in Aachen and Jülich will take place on Wednesdays during the lecture time and will start not earlier than 21st of April. Experiment assignment in Aachen (here). Use this legend document: (here)

Group assignment SS 2021:

Due to the new data privacy protection policy we are not allowed to show the assignement anymore. Assignment will be sent by email and can be found in the moodle.
