Efficiently illustrates the various types of diffraction.
- Exceptionally robust and easy to set up
- Students easily recreate Young's Double Slit experiment
- Test the effects of different slits and wavelengths
- Includes four diffraction slides and two different laser pointers
The Laser Diffraction Kit lets students create, view, and measure diffraction and interference patterns. Students can compare the effects of different slit sizes and spacing, as well as how different wavelengths diffract under the same conditions.
The kit includes one slide with a fixed slit separation, but with varying slit widths. Another slide keeps the slit width constant while varying slit separations. A third slide slides contains five single slits of varying widths. Finally, the kit includes a traditional diffraction grating with 300 lines/mm.
The unique base securely holds the included standard laser pointers. An included clip allows you to hold the laser button on during experiments. Measurements of the light patterns are easy to read when the laser patterns are projected against a wall. An activity guide is included.
