Demonstrations of Wave Optics (Interference and Diffraction of Light) for Large Audiences Using a Laser and a Multimedia Projector
Ivanov, Dragia; Nikolov, Stefan
Physics Education, v46 n6 p705-709 Nov 2011
This article presents a new technique for performing most well-known demonstrations of wave optics. Demonstrations which are normally very hard to show to more than a few people can be presented easily to very large audiences with excellent visibility for everyone. The proposed setup is easy to put together and use and can be very useful for high-school physics teachers and even university professors. (Contains 6 figures.)
