Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :


The aim of this mandatory UE is to provide students with digital methods and skills that are vital at Master level, whether or not in an academic environment. Depending on their personal preferences, students will choose between Computational Physics (PN) or Data Acquisition (AD):

 Data Acquisition 

Students will be asked to set up a measuring system with modern computing tools (an introduction to the LabvieW software will be provided). They will be asked to develop two projects.

The first involves using an acquisition device to digitise an analogue signal. The acquired signal will then be processed to extract hidden information (spectral analysis, zero-padding, windowing, noise reduction by signal averaging, etc.)

The second aims to help the student become familiar with remote device monitoring. A parallel link (GPIB) between the computer and the measuring instruments will be used. This will require the student to successfully automate a measuring system. They will have to produce a program able to measure the frequency response of an unknown component.

 Computational Physics

This module aims to familiarise students with numerical modelling and simulation of physical problems using modern numerical methods and programming languages. The first part consists of classes/tutorials, and is followed by a project to simulate a physical system, carried out in pairs.

Examples of projects: Introduction to Monte-Carlo and molecular dynamics, propagation of a wave packet, fractal growth, density of states for carbon nanotubes, 2D Ising model, ground state of the helium atom, etc.
