My name is Ian Yap Chang Jie, a Year 5 Physics/Mathematics Double Major from NTU, Singapore.
Singapore empathizes on applied research as a whole, especially in the field of Bio-Technology and Engineering. It is also a small city state that has huge economic growth thanks to its maritime waters.
You should visit Singapore as there are representations of various food cuisines around the world.
I am a graduating student, and I have persuaded by my to-be (hopefully) supervisor from CERN, ISOIDE to take this course for my future PhD-related projects. I do have a bit of background on Algebra and some Analysis, but I hope that these are not needed here. 🙂
Also, to be honest, I have studied a bit of hyperfine interactions under the equivalent course called “atomic physics”, and I have a background in Quantum Mechanics, and undergraduate Solid State Physics. However, I am interested in the experimental side of hyperfine interactions and I know that I will learn what is relevant for my future projects to come.
Wellcome! As you have already a background in hyperfine interactions, this course can still be relevant for you because (1) the material is presented not always in the traditional way. Looking at it in a different way helps to understand it even better. (2) Helping out your fellow students by answering their questions in the forums, is a very good way of learning too.
I hope and expect you will still find a sufficient amount of knowledge that is new for you.
If from your background you have suggestions to improve the course, feel free to use the ‘suggest an improvement’ link at the side as often as you want.
