Applied Physics  2

Applied Physics  2 is semester 2 subject in first year of engineering under Mumbai University. Objectives for the subject Applied Physics – II to impart knowledge of basic concepts in applied physics. To provide the knowledge and methodology necessary for solving problems in the field of engineering.

Outcomes for the subject Applied Physics  2 Learner will be able to comprehend principles of interference and diffraction. Illustrate the principle, construction and working of various LASERs and its applications. Identify various applications of optical fibers. Comprehend the concepts of electrodynamics and Maxwell’s equations and their use in telecommunication systems. Apply the concepts of electromagnetism in focusing systems and CRO. Comprehend the significance of nanoscience and nanotechnology, its applications. Module INTERFERENCE AND DIFFRACTION OF LIGHT consist of the following subtopics Interference by division of amplitude and by division of wave front; Interference in thin film of constant thickness due to reflected and transmitted light; origin of colours in thin film; Wedge shaped film(angle of wedge and thickness measurement); Newton’s rings Applications of interference – Determination of thickness of very thin wire or foil; determination of refractive index of liquid; wavelength of incident light; radius of curvature of lens; testing of surface flatness; Anti-reflecting films and Highly reflecting film. Diffraction of Light Fraunhoffer diffraction at single slit, Fraunhoffer diffraction at double slit, Diffraction Grating, Resolving power of a grating, dispersive power of a grating Application of Diffraction – Determination of wavelength of light with a plane transmission grating.

Applied physics is the application of physical theories to problem-solving. It is the use of theoretical knowledge of the properties of physical bodies with the intention of achieving a particular technological or practical goal. It is also usually considered to be a bridge or a connection between physics and engineering. A laser is a device that emits light through a process of optical amplification based on the stimulated emission of electromagnetic radiation. The term “laser” originated as an acronym for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation”. The first laser was built in 1960 by Theodore H. Maiman at Hughes Research Laboratories, based on theoretical work by Charles Hard Townes and Arthur Leonard Schawlow. Nanotechnology is the use of matter on an atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale for industrial purposes. The earliest, widespread description of nanotechnology referred to the particular technological goal of precisely manipulating atoms and molecules for fabrication of macroscale products, also now referred to as molecular nanotechnology. A more generalized description of nanotechnology was subsequently established by the National Nanotechnology Initiative, which defined nanotechnology as the manipulation of matter with at least one dimension sized from 1 to 100 nanometers. This definition reflects the fact that quantum mechanical effects are important at this quantum-realm scale, and so the definition shifted from a particular technological goal to a research category inclusive of all types of research and technologies that deal with the special properties of matter which occur below the given size threshold. It is therefore common to see the plural form “nanotechnologies” as well as “nanoscale technologies” to refer to the broad range of research and applications whose common trait is size.
