This course includes a substantial experimental or theoretical research project and a related topic in advanced physics. Students enrolled in this course select one of the following modules, depending on the nature of the project and subject to availability (and not already undertaken as part of the course PHYSICS 4010 Advanced Physics Part 1): Advanced Astrophysics, Advanced Atmospheric Physics, Electronics for Data Acquisition, Electrodynamics, Data Analysis and Modelling, Gauge Field Theories, General Relativity, Non-Linear Optics, Nuclear And Radiation Physics, Quantum Field Theory and Relativistic Quantum Mechanics & Particle Physics. Students must consult the Honours Coordinator and project supervisor regarding the selection of the module as it must directly relate to their chosen research topic. The research project is selected at the start of the Honours year following consultation with the Honours Coordinator and depends on availability of research supervisors in the School in any particular year. Students are expected to meet with their Principal Supervisor on a weekly basis to work on their research project and must demonstrate satisfactory progress at the end of the first semester of study to be allowed to continue onto a second semester of study. A research report is submitted in the second semester of study in the course PHYSICS 4020B Honours Physics Project Part B.
