Refraction is the bending of a wave when it enters a medium where its speed is different.
Tutorial on refraction and calculating refractive index. Move arrows to start simulations.
A concise but detailed explanation of refraction. Clear diagrams and worked examples, some harder than others.
The mathematics of refraction in materials with non-uniform optical densities leading to path differences and interference.
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.
A java applet that lets you investigate reflection and refraction. One of a series of simple applets that are good for display use in the classroom.
A mathematical description relating to refraction.
Page describing the behaviour of waves.
