A Simple Diffraction/Interference-Pattern Scanner Constructed from Inkjet-Printer Parts
Atkin, Keith
Physics Education, v48 n2 p190-193 Mar 2013
This paper describes the construction of a simple inexpensive scanner which can be used in conjunction with a data logger to produce intensity plots of diffraction and interference patterns. Making use of the drive mechanism from an old inkjet-printer is the central feature. (Contains 7 figures.)
