Optics Demonstrations Using Cylindrical Lenses
Ivanov, Dragia; Nikolov, Stefan
Physics Education, v50 n5 p548-559 Sep 2015
In this paper we consider the main properties of cylindrical lenses and propose several demonstrational experiments that can be performed with them. Specifically we use simple glasses full of water to demonstrate some basic geometrical optics principles and phenomena. We also present some less standard experiments that can be performed with such cylindrical lenses. All proposed experiments are accessible and attractive.
