Quantum Mechanics
Rasoanaivo, René Yves
The module describes the experimental findings that lead to a new concept and a new scientific attitude towards physical phenomena at the microscopic level. In addition, the module describes the formal terminology based on assumptions derived from these experimental observations, such as Schrödinger’s wave mechanics and the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics. Examples of applications (such as the study of a related onedimensional study of a system of two quantum states, and the study of the hydrogen atom) can aid in supporting the results of abstract ideas which bring about the various formal theories of quantum mechanics.

Mathematical Physics II
Youm, Issakha
This Mathematical Physics II module builds on the Mathematical Physics I module. It addresses differential and integral calculus tools for functions (scalar and vector) of multiple variables. It reviews the areas of vectors, spatial geo-metry, vector functions, curves, surfaces, partial derivatives, multiple integrals and diverse applications such as surface and volume calculations. It also covers the notions of curvilinear integrals and surface integrals as well as the theorems of Gauss, Green and Stokes. It concludes with applications in wave theory and magneto-electric wave propagation. This last section, which explains some ap-plications in the field of physics,
gives the learner an idea of how mathematics is applied in practice.

Geometrical Optics and Physical Optics
A. Ramilison, Herimanda
In this module, the concept of light’s behavior when reflected from the same medium or at the interface between two different media will be treated.
The construction of images obtained through optical systems and different types of lenses will be discussed. Certain optical systems will be presented in this module: the eye, a magnifying glass, a microscope, a telescope, a camera, along with the way they work by calculating focal lengths, magnification and vergency (optical power). The module explains the comprehension
and correction of vision problems: farsightedness, nearsightedness.
The next step will be to explain essential wave-related concepts, along with the way they interact. The observation that the pitch of sound from a siren changes when the source or receiver or both moves will be elucidated. The concept of phase will allow the understanding of phenomena such as interference or diffraction when two apparently identical phenomena
are superimposed.

Electronics
Kinyera Obwoya, Sam
Electronics is the study of the flow of charge through various materials and devices such as, semiconductors, resistors, inductors, capacitors, nano-structures, and vacuum tubes. All applications of electronics involve the transmission of power and possibly information. Although considered to be a theoretical branch of physics, the design and construction of electronic circuits to solve practical problems is an essential technique in the fields of electronic engineering and computer engineering.
The study of new semiconductor devices and surrounding technology is sometimes considered a branch of physics. This module focuses on engineering aspects of electronics. Other important topics include electronic waste and occupational health impacts of semiconductor manufacturing.
This course of electronics is intended for students enrolling for pre-service and in-service students registering for BSc with Education and BEd degrees. As you may be aware, Electronics forms one the back bone of modern physics. The module has six units: Diode
Circuits; Transistor Circuits; Operational Amplifiers; Digital Circuits; Data acquisition and Process Control; and Computers and Device Interconnection.
In the first unit/activity i.e. diodes circuits, students are expected to explain charge carrier generation, intrinsic and extrinsic semi-conductors, formation and application of P-N junction, and to design and analyse diode circuits (e.g, power supply circuits).
In the second unit/activity i.e. Transistor circuits, the student is expected to explain how a Bipolar Junction Transistor (BJT) works; Design and analyse basic BJT circuits in various configurations (CE, EB, CB); Explain how a junction Field Effect Transistor (JFET) works ; Design and analyse JFET circuits in both configurations (CD, CS); Explain how MOSFET works and also be able to Design and analyse MOSFET circuits.
