2023S, LU, 4.0h, 5.0EC, to be held in blocked form


  • Semester hours: 4.0
  • Credits: 5.0
  • Type: LU Laboratory Exercise
  • Format: Presence

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand and conduct simple experiments at low temperatures. They are able to devise such experiments and understand the functionality. They acquire a basic knowledge of superconductivity as well as the methods used to measure transport currents, critical temperature and various types of magnetisation measurements.

Subject of course

Introduction into experimental methods and measuring techniques. Measurement and control of low temperatures. Measurements on Superconductors. In German.

Teaching methods

This is a teaching block of several full days. Each day starts with a short 45 minute introduction into the basics of work at low temperatures and superconductivity.  The following experimental
sections are done in typically two groups of students with four persons in each one. The experiments range from simple temperature regulation and measurement at low temperatures to more demanding tasks of measuring various properties of superconductors, such as transport critical currents, critical temperature and various magnetization measurements. The results have to be presented and discussed at the end and a scientific pubication has to be written.
