Since the emergence of augmented reality (AR), it has been a constant subject of educational research, as it can improve conceptual understanding and generally promote learning. In addition, a motivational effect and improved interaction and collaboration through AR were observed. Recently, AR technologies have taken a major leap forward in development, such that head-mounted devices or smartglasses in particular are now finding their first applications in STEM education, especially in experiments. In line with these developments, we here present an AR experiment in electrodynamics for undergraduate laboratory courses in physics using real-time physical data from and virtual tools on mobile devices to both analyze and visualize physical phenomena.
