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.
The historical development of a model for light. In particular the nature of light and its propagation as a wave in the ether.
Comment by Professor Jim Al-Khalili on why he doesn't believe neutrinos really do travel faster than light.
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.
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.
A high school physics tutorial on how light is reflected, also covering plane, convex and concave mirrors.
Paper discussing the possibilities for superluminal (faster-than-light) travel. Geometric and algebraic comparison of Galilean and Minkowski space-time properties. Several links and references.
This site gives details of a series of demonstrations on light, giving details of how to set-up the demonstration and any safety hazards.
