How light is scattered in the atmosphere, explained simply.
An animated representation of the famous alpha-particle scattering demonstration. You can adjust the frequency of arrival of the particles and observe which make it through and which rebound.
Explains law of reflection including interactive Java tutorials. Links to ideas of fluorescence, diffraction, polarization, scattering and virtual microscopy.
Details on the observatories and the advanced technology solar telescope with an image gallery and information for visitors.
Simulation of alpha scattering with several target atoms and binding energy calculations.
Ernest Rutherford (1871 - 1937) greatest contribution to physics were his investigations into the scattering of alpha rays and the nature of the inner structure of the atom.
