Teaching overview

Courses taught by Julio Barreiro at UC San Diego:

PHYS 2CL. Physics Laboratory—Electricity and Magnetism. Experiments on L-R-C circuits; oscillations, resonance and damping, measurement of magnetic fields. One-hour lecture and three hours’ laboratory. Program or materials fees may apply.
Spring 2019

PHYS 124. Laboratory projects. A laboratory-lecture-project course featuring creation of an experimental apparatus in teams of about two. Emphasis is on electronic sensing of the physical environment and actuating physical responses. The course will use a computer interface such as the Arduino.
