The Professor and TA for each experiment can be found on the Experiments Assignment page on Quercus.
The Professor or TA for an experiment may change, locations may change, and experiments may be added or dropped during the year; check the website and quercus for the most up-to-date information.
Experiments with zero setups listed are currently unavailable because they are either under repair or not yet sufficiently developed for general use.
All rooms are on the second floor of the North Wing of McLennan Physical Labs. Here is a MAP of the second floor.
If you have suggested changes or improvements to the documentation for these experiments, please email the Course Coordinator. If the changes are significant and approved, new versions will be added here and you will be listed as a co-author.
