Making a Cat's Eye in a Classroom
Rovsek, Barbara
Physics Education, v45 n2 p186-189 Mar 2010
Three plain mirrors, perpendicular to each other, reflect a beam of light back into the direction it came from. An activity is suggested where pupils can employ this feature of perpendicular mirrors and make their own corner cube retroreflector--a kind of cat's eye. (Contains 7 figures and 1 footnote.)
