A Low-Cost Experimental Kit for Teaching Wave Optics Based on the CDIO Approach
Khoa, Dinh Xuan; Bang, Nguyen Huy
Physics Teacher, v57 n3 p169-172 Mar 2019
We constructed a low-cost experimental kit consisting of a compact 532-nm diode laser, optics, and optomechanical components that arrange on a small honeycomb breadboard. The kit is flexible enough to construct five typical wave optic experiments, e.g., double-slit interference, Michelson and Mach-Zehnder interferometers, diffraction, and Malus's law of polarization. It is useful to use in both classrooms and laboratories to enhance experimental skills and creativity based on the CDIO (Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate) approach.
