A resource that links to many sites about light and colour
Includes a number of games about light and colour - reflection, spectrum, speed of light, optical illusions and refraction. Teachers notes available.
Calculation of the deflection of starlight expected due to bending of light close to a large mass, plus some observed results.
Details of the experiment conducted to determine the speed of light including Ole Römer's observation with an eclipse of Io, Jupiter's moon.
Comment by Professor Jim Al-Khalili on why he doesn't believe neutrinos really do travel faster than light.
The historical development of a model for light. In particular the nature of light and its propagation as a wave in the ether.
A simple, easy to understand explanation of polarised light, using the analogy of a piece of string.
Experimental measurements of the speed of light have been refined in progressively more accurate experiments since the seventeenth century.
A high school physics tutorial on how light is reflected, also covering plane, convex and concave mirrors.
Have you ever wondered how a fluorescent light works? Even though they're nearly as commonplace as normal light bulbs their unusual shape and well-known idiosyncrasies make them seem more mysterious.
