1. Exam requirements

The required scope of knowledge:
The course matter presented in the lectures and in the practical exercises in the lab.

Besides lecture slides, the course uses this English textbook as a reference material:
Jacob Fraden: Handbook of Modern Sensors, AIP Press, ISBN: 0387007504

The practical exercises include two written tests (roughly in the 5th and 10th week of the semester). Points from these tests (max. 11pts + 11pts) are included into the exam score. Another 18 points (12 assignemets x 1.5pts/assignement) can be obtained by presenting duly processed measurement reports prepared until the next practical exercise.

Towards the end of semester, there is an extensive written test, the score is max. 60pts.

Summary:
Exercises:
    two short tests: 11 + 11 = 22 pts maximum
    lab reports: 12 x 1.5 = 18 pts maximum.
Exam test:
    60 pts maximum
============================
Altogether: 100 pts maximum.

2. The practical exercises

  • Students must attend the practical exercises in the laboratory. Due to the broad range of topics covered, the students must prepare for the labs by studying the instructions of the individual assignments in advance. The instructions are available in PDF for download from this page (see below).
  • Students must attend all exercises (i.e. 12 assignements + final week). If not possible (e.g. illness), the student should make the missing assignement up in a spare time, as soon as possible.
  • The students perform the measurements and record all data to their personal notepads. Their records should include all the details needed for processing of the measurement report, like types of used instruments, setup and circuit schemas, measured values, etc. At home, the students prepare a report including all calculations of derived values, drawing of graphs and making conclusions about the obtained results and eventual errors.
  • At the next practical exercise in the lab, the student presents the report to the teacher. The teacher evaluates the report and either accepts it (and assigns up to 1.5pts per report) or rejects it and asks for rewriting.
