OVERVIEW

This course is addressed to physicists with strong interests for experimental and applied physics.

In the first part we will discuss advanced subjects like transmission lines and electrical noise, in the second part we will study digital electronics both from the practical point of view (embedded systems with FPGAs) and from the mathematical/conceptual point of view (digital signal processing).

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Transmission lines with applications.

Stochastic processes: autocorrelation and power spectral density. The noise in electronic devices: signal to noise ratio, noise figure, noise temperature, voltage and current density of noise. Measurement of the noise power. Man-made noise: noise reduction techniques. Extraction techniques of signal from noise : waveform averager, lock-in detection, correlators, optimal filtering. Examples of application of the techniques for the  extraction of signal from noise.

Introduction to digital signal processing.

Embedded digital systems, hardware description languages (Verilog).

Lab:  transmission lines, noise measurements, FPGA programming
