Overview

One of the basic phenomena that led to the development of quantum mechanics was the spectral curve seen from a black body. Using this prism spectrophotometer, students can scan the spectrum of a black body, plot the intensity versus wavelength and change the temperature of the black body to see the shift in the peak wavelength.

This spectrophotometer uses a prism to disperse the light instead of a diffraction grating. This allows the infrared to be seen without overlapping the second order visible spectral lines. The Infrared Sensor has a linear response to all wavelengths within its range, so the actual intensity of the light in the black body spectrum is detected and there is no need to calibrate the intensity.
