The Undergraduate syllabus of Physics Honours course in Jamshedpur Women’s College, Jamshedpur expects the students to carry out a project (30 marks) in the Fifth semester. A laser refractometer built out of a spectrometer (which has seen better days), a hollow glass prism(fabricated) and some other apparatus mandatorily available in the Undergraduate laboratory unfolds some interesting ideas to carry out projects on a shoestring budget.
