Open Source Electronics For Laboratory Physics, Zengqiang John Liu Jul 2014

Open Source Electronics For Laboratory Physics, Zengqiang John Liu

Physics and Astronomy Faculty Presentations

Open-source electronics are electrical circuits and devices whose designs are released to the public by the designers, so others may modify and improve them. Using open-source data acquisition electronics in laboratory physics will dramatically reduce the cost of laboratory electronics and empower instructors to develop new laboratory activities, demonstrations and exploratory projects with students. This workshop will improve participants' understanding of open-source electronics and their applications in laboratory physics. Many laboratory physics sensors and open-source devices will be introduces and demonstrated. The workshop provides hands-on experiences in projects using laboratory physics sensors with an award-winning, low-cost, open-source electronic data acquisition ...
