Professor Grigoriev introduces Origin software in lab course

The University of Tulsa Department of Physics and Engineering Physics recently announced it has integrated Origin software into its physics instrumentation lab course. OriginLab is a leading publisher of data analysis and graphing software for corporations, government agencies, colleges and universities worldwide.

Assistant Professor Alexei Grigoriev in the TU Department of Physics and Engineering Physics has used Origin in research related to experimental condensed matter physics. He recently incorporated the software into his lab course to teach the basics of scientific programming, experimental data fitting, system behavior simulation and data presentation.

“Origin allows our students to integrate three major components of engineering and research – data collection, analysis and reporting in a single environment,” Grigoriev said. “I don’t know of any other software that allows for such a high degree of integration while remaining a very intuitive, robust and flexible solution. By giving students hands-on experiences with Origin, TU is better preparing themselves for research and data presentation in their graduate and professional careers.”

Origin representatives said they appreciate the support and feedback from TU as the Massachusetts-based company strives to consistently meet the needs of future scientists and engineers.
