Option 1: Part 1-2 (lectures 1-10, 15 hours). You want to know the secrets of stable and low-noise oscillators, how they can be measured, and the systems they belong to. Choose Phase Noise and Frequency Stability in Oscillators from RF/Microwaves to Optics.
Option 2: Part 1 and 3 (lectures 1-5 and 11-15, 15 hours). You are an experimentalist interested in precision measurements, in the subtle meaning of uncertainty, and in the nature of the measurement units we use in all domains of science. Attend Scientific Instruments
Option 1-2: Part 1-3 (lectures 1-15, 22.5 hours). The secrets of oscillators do not suffice to you without the foundations of the science of measurement. Fo for both Phase Noise and Frequency Stability in Oscillators from RF/Microwaves to Optics and Scientific Instruments.
Lectuers 1-10 (15 hours).
This course derives from a series of seminars given at the Tutorial Session of international conferences of time and frequency, and from invited seminars. A must for all the PhD students working on a topic broadly related to time and frequency, including optics and astronomy.Download the most recent slide set. Notice that the 2020 edition was 7.5 H, with the Part 1 omitted. However, the Part 1 is included in the learning material of Scientific Instruments.
Lectuers 1-5 and 11-15 (15 hours).
This course is a must for a must for young experimentalists (PhD students and postdoctoral fellows) in engineering and physics. The first part is about experimental methods of general interest. The second part is on the new International System, of Units (SI), in force since May 20, 2019.Download the most recent slide set.
Burden: 10 H lectures in five sessions of 2 H each.
Schedule (2021): Mon/Thu 10:00-12:00 AM, Jan 25, 28, Feb 1, 4, 8.
How to communicate scientific ideas in journals, conferences and books, how the mechanism underneath works, and how to target audience and publisher. This course is a must for PhD students of all disciplines, and falls in the category of "humanities." It is open to a broad audience, including young Colleagues, Master Students, and Guests.
