The Smart Physics laboratory experiments have been designed to introduce the students to two new methods of data collection and performing experiments to test and verify physical principles. 1. Using a digital camera to record videos in slow motion which allows us to observe objects moving at high speed. 2. Using a smartphone’s built-in inertial […]
Dr Muhammad Sabieh Anwar is Professor of physics, Ahmad Dawood Chair and Dean at the LUMS Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering. He helped establish the physics department at LUMS and was among the principal founders of the School’s experimental facilities and curriculum. Ideas from his physics […]
An article entitled Comment on ‘Measurement of the magnetic field of small magnets with a smartphone: a very economical laboratory practice for introductory physics courses’ has been published in the European Journal of Physics. It is a comment on an article byEnrique Arribas and talks about possibilities for exploring various magnetic phenomena.
Dr. Sabieh Anwar of the Physics Department welcomed the batch of 2019 through a motivational lecture on experimental physics. This lecture was part of the PHY100 course in Experimental Physics, a core requirement for science and engineering students. The audience were introduced to the idea of measurement and the key characteristics of the experimental culture. […]
The Physlab has recently acquired a CNC machine (CNC Lathe Smart 32-T8, manufactured in Taiwan). This will boost the manufacturing capabilities of the Laboratory, making possible the fabrication of high precision components and equipment for scientific research. This is the latest addition to the Physics Lab Workshop. The machine is equipped with Fanuc control.
The Physlab has assembled a low cost energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (XRF) system to carry out the elemental analysis of different materials. The assembly to place the samples is constructed in the physlab workshop and analysis of different materials is carried out using this XRF system. The XRF system will ease the analysis of materials […]
