Basic Optics Ray Table - OS-8465



The Ray Table provides an excellent viewing surface for ray optics. The table can be rotated about its axis to quickly change the incident angle of the ray. The resulting angles of reflection and refraction are easily measured directly off the polar grid printed on the table. The (included) acrylic cylindrical D lens simplifies the experiment by having the rays bend at only one surface. Investigate Snell's Law for both cases of rays either entering or leaving the acrylic.


  • Two-piece construction allows the table to be rotated
  • Printed polar grid for easy measurements
  • D-shaped lens allows rays to bend at only one surface
