Physics Notes

Here are the notes I wrote during my undergraduate degree in physics with theoretical physics. Whilst they are not perfect (or even close) they have helped me a lot. There will undoubtedly be a great deal of unforgivable mistakes throughout each of the modules and many alarming typos. If you spot any mistakes or have any general complaints (or compliments) then feel free to email me.All the work has been done myself and consists of mainly lecture material with working out to its fullest where I could be bothered.

As part of my undergraduate I had to give a talk on the optical pumping of Rubidium. I generated a walkthrough tour of the experiment, the video from the talk can be found here.
