Physics Lab

The physics laboratory on LAU’s Beirut campus is equipped with computer stations, each with probes and sensors for automated data acquisition through interfaces for precise data collection and analysis. The lab is also equipped with a multimedia system that allows projection of computer monitor and video images on wall screens.

Our facility currently provides freshman, physics, pre-med, engineering, chemistry and biology students with lab courses covering topics in mechanics, thermodynamics, electricity, magnetism, optics, atomic and modern physics.

The lab houses sophisticated and state-of-the-art experimental setups including projectile mini launchers, ballistic pendulums, rotational platforms, heat engine gas law apparatus, thermal expansion apparatus, steam generators, oscilloscopes, function generators, digital multimeters, LCR meters, variable capacitors, and digital teslameters. Other equipment include: basic electrostatic system, electron to mass ratio of an electron apparatus, zeemann effect set-up, Franck-hertz oven, electron diffraction tube, photoelectric effect apparatus, different types of light sources, basic optics system kits, advanced optics system kits, student spectrometer and a variety of sensors.
