Lab Videos

Dr. Thornton has produced videos for many of the PHYS 636l labs. You will need Quick Time in order to view these videos. The videos are on the order of 8-10 minutes long and discuss the experimental equipment, not the physics. The video links will be placed below.

Quick Time is created by Apple, and is available as a free download.
