CET312 Precision Instrumentation Techniques III

Course Provider

School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (SPMS)



Academic Unit



Precision engineering is the core technology that driving the development of advanced manufacturing, which involve instrumentation and techniques. This is a laboratory-based course that aims to train student on precision instrumentation skills.

This course is part of:
- Graduate Certificate in Precision Instrumentation
- FlexiMasters in Precision Instrumentation

On completion of the course, the learners will acquire good physics understanding and training skills of the chosen precision instrumentation techniques.

Learner will have a choice to choose ONE experimental technique for operation understanding from either section A or section B listed below:

A. Signal Measurement and Analysis Techniques:

• Signal analysis by using lock-in amplifying techniques
• Noise control and analysis by using Fourier methods
• RF signal analysis by using vector network analyser
• Memory device electrical measurement techniques
• Solar cell measurement techniques

B. Structural, Chemical and Optical Measurement Techniques

• Modern interferometry techniques
• Surface analysis by probe microscopy
• Structural characterisation by electron microscopy
• X-ray diffraction analysis and fitting

Participants with physical sciences or engineering background, or working engineer who wish to advance in their careers.
