Advanced Optics: Computer-Based Diffraction and Interference Experiments

January 20, 2020, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Room Curacao 3 - Caribe Royale Hotel - Orlando, FL

Join us in this workshop for a hands-on look at PASCO's new Wireless Diffraction System used to perform labs and lecture demonstrations on diffraction and interference. The wireless design and smooth scanning transit of the system allows students to studymany interference patterns with high precision during a single lab period. In the workshop we will explore differences in interference patterns caused by changing slit width, slit separation, number of slits, and changes due to differences in laser wavelength. At the end of the workshop we will give away a Wireless Diffraction System.
