Physics of Isotopologues




Teaching materials

  • Traditional and Advanced Isotope Systems - Physics of Isotopologues
    The research group advances not only the latest measurement techniques and their application but also tries to visualize part of the related physical principles. A list of links to experiments, thesis chapters and videos is given below.

  • Experiments for visulisation of fundamental phenomena of environmental physics
    Physik unserer Umwelt-Experimente zur Veranschaulichung fundamentaler Phänomene, Staatsexamensarbeit (in German) of Sabrina Mack, Institut für Umweltphysik, Universität Heidelberg, Germany, p.81.
    - Complete thesis including didactic ideas
    - Greenhouse gas experiment (Excerpt from the thesis)

    Videos of Experiments
    - Flow at the boundary layer of two liquids at increasing rotational motion
    - Fluid flow driven by temperature-dependent density differences
    - Thermal circulation without rotation and and with rotation

    Links to other websites with supporting material (outside university domain):
    - Insights into fluid dynamics
    - Visualisation of non-newtonian fluids
    - Visualisation of fluids in a rotating system (here: Taylor column experiment)
    - Simulation of diffusion

  • Developments in isotope ratio mass spectrometry
    Einblick in die Welt der Moleküle - Entwicklung der Isotopenmassenspektrometrie, Staatsexamensarbeit (in German) of Frieder Ernst, Institut für Umweltphysik, Universität Heidelberg, Germany, p.76.
