An in depth guide to light, optics and colour, covering wave particle duality, reflection, refraction, waves, diffraction, polarisation, birefringence, colour temperature, human perception and more.
One of the most important experiments of wave theory is that of Young's double slits. It is a clear example of the diffraction of light conducted with essentially basic scientific equipment.
Refraction is the bending of a wave when it enters a medium where its speed is different.
A simple and effective, interactive example of the birefringence of Iceland Spar, with a clear explanation of the effect.
Covers the law of refraction including interactive Java tutorials. Links to ideas of fluorescence, diffraction, polarization, reflection, scattering, and Virtual microscopy (Virtual scanning electron ...
A good explanation of reflection and refraction using ray diagrams.
This site aims to further our understanding of light and the rainbow.
Useful information driven site which provides details on how light is refracted (including total internal reflection).
Includes a number of games about light and colour - reflection, spectrum, speed of light, optical illusions and refraction. Teachers notes available.
A experiment to demonstrate how light exhibits wave-particle duality. All you need is three pieces of mechanical pencil lead, a laser pointer and a dark room.
