PHY424/426/428/429 (A&S) and PHY327/427/428/429 (EngSci)


The first session for the Fall semester is on Tuesday 9 September 2014. New students in the lab, e.g. PHY327F, 424F or transfer/exchange students, should come to room MP239 at 9:10am.

Students who have previously taken a semester in the Advanced Physics Lab, e.g. most PHY 426/427/428/429F students, can just go to MP251 to pick up a Interim Advanced Lab Handout and Experiment Preference/Contact/Schedule Form anytime after noon on Monday 8 September. (Please also fill out an attendance sheet in the Red Binder.)

Most of the information on these webpages refers to last semester, but the lab will not be too different this semester so most of the information is still relevant. The course handout, people, and dates will be updated before 8 September.

If you have any questions, please contact the Course Coordinator: David Bailey after 24 August.

The goals of the Advanced Physics Laboratory are to give students an opportunity to work on interesting challenging experiments, deepen their understanding of the underlying Physics, and to further develop laboratory, analysis, and communication skills.

Our main office is MP251 in the North Wing of McLennan Physical Labs, phone: 416-978-8803.

The official lab sessions during the spring and fall semesters are Tuesdays 9:10-noon and Fridays 10:10-1:00pm.   The laboratories are also open Monday through Friday 9:10-4:50pm, if students wish to also also on experiments outside the official lab sessions.

Safety is very important to everyone involved in the Advanced Physics Labs.  Here is a link to the Health and Safety Web Site of the Physics Department, which every student should be familiar with.   In particular, there is important information on Emergency Responses, Hazards you may encounter in this course, and Safety Training.
