The Winter Semester 2022 Advanced Physics Lab (APL) will start in-person on Tuesday 11 January, with everyone masked and carefully following COVID hygiene rules. The lab capacity is limited to ensure safety, so enrolment in any Advanced Lab Course (i.e. PHY 327/424/426/427/428/429) must be approved by the APL Coordinator Prof. Bailey.
Note that the APL is one of the few University of Toronto classes that has been approved to run in-person in January 2022. If you need this course and cannot attend in person, please contact Prof. Bailey
SEE BELOW FOR ENROLMENT INFORMATION.
Contact Prof. Bailey if you have any questions about the Advanced Physics Lab.
The goal of the Advanced Physics Laboratory is for students to learn more about how to measure and model physical systems, and how to communicate that knowledge. Students have the 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 periods are TF9-12, but the laboratories are open Monday-Friday 9:10am-4 pm since many experiments require set-up and measurements that cannot be accomplished within one 3-hour lab session. When the lab is open, students can work on experiments outside the official lab periods, but must stay in close touch with the professor supervising their experiment.
