Diffraction Optics Kit -- Basic Optics

OS-8531A   - 

Includes two slit wheels allowing students to examine various diffraction patterns as well as a Red Diode Laser.

Overview

The High-precision diffraction slits include two slit wheels with holders designed to match the height of the slits to the height of the diode laser. All components clip directly to the Optics Bench from the Basic Optics System. The slit wheels eliminate the frustration of trying to change the slits in a darkened room. To change the slit being illuminated by the laser, the slit wheel is simply rotated to the next positive click to lock another slit into position.

The slits are constructed using vacuum deposited chromium on glass.  The following patterns are included:

  • Single Slit (four variations)
  • Variable Width Single Slit
  • Double Slit (four variations)
  • Multiple Slit (3, 4, 5)
  • Single Slit/Double Slit Comparison
  • Variable Spacing Double Slit

The Diffraction Optics Kit is an accessory for the Basic Optics Systems.

Special Features

  • Built-in scale
  • Track just snaps together
  • Available green and red diode lasers for comparison studies.
