Higher education credits: 6. Grading scale: UG. Level: G1 (First level). Language of instruction: The course will be given in Swedish. Compulsory for: C2. Course coordinator: Prof. Jörgen Larsson,, Fysik, kurslaboratoriet. Assessment: A passing grade on exercises during the course, laboratory exercises and projects are needed for a passing grade on the course. If a passing grade is not obtained after the exercises an oral re-examintion is offered. Further information: Under the first study period, the major part of the education is Lectures, Exercises and Laboratory exercises, During the second study period, the students will study a practical problem in-depth. This is done by experimental projects, carried out in groups of 2-4 students. Home page:
