2023S, LU, 4.0h, 5.0EC


  • Semester hours: 4.0
  • Credits: 5.0
  • Type: LU Laboratory Exercise
  • Format: Hybrid

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand quantum-mechanical basic principles and to use laboratory processes to observe them. The experimental results have to be processed and discussed in a scientific way. 

Subject of course

There are 6 experimental setups available:

Entangled photons and Bell's inequality, Optical resonators (HeNe-laser), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), Laserspectroscopy of Rubidium, Neutron interferometry, Interference at the double slit using single electrons (new) 

 Manuals can be downloaded from TISS.

Teaching methods

Practical course:

Graphical processing of experimental results

Discussion of the experimental results

Error analysis

Mode of examination

Written and oral

Additional information

Manuals can be downloaded from TISS.

Some remarks concerning the downloads below:

Bell experiment + 2-photon experiment: The physics behind these experiments is treated in detail in the lecture "Quantum optics II" by Arno Rauschenbeutel. 

Especially questions like "Why does the Bell experiment disprove local realism" can not be answered without a little bit of math.

In case you did not have a chance to follow the lecture, you can find a short argumentation (By Stefanie Barz, Uni Wien) and Bell's original paper in the download documents.

Contact Dr. Haslinger (philipp.haslinger@tuwien.ac.at).
