Wave Physics

The concept of waves is fundamental for the understanding of many physical phenomena.
Microwaves provide a good opportunity to investigate wave phenomena experimentally because their wavelength of come cm is easily measurable. Interference phenomena, diffraction and intensity distributions can be directly observed.

We offer the course on wave physics with focus on different aspects:

Fundamentals

Interference
