Experiments in modern and classical physics are independently designed, performed, and evaluated. Experiments are chosen from the areas of atomic, solid state and thermal physics, as well as from acoustics and optics. Computers are utilized for control of the experimental process, data acquisition and analysis. A written description of the proposed method must be submitted and approved before each experiment, and a subsequent written critical evaluation of each experiment is required.
