Light and Optics Experiment Book
DEVELOPED BY LASER-TEC
The Light and Optics Experiment Book is a laboratory manual with 23 experiments that guide students in the exploration of the fundamentals of geometrical and wave optics, lasers, laser safety, optical alignment, and experimental data analysis.
We recommend using the book in:
While writing and testing this book, our main focus was to keep the introductory cost to a minimum to make this work available to as many students and teachers as possible. The inexpensive $100 Light and Optics Experiment Kit covers 18 of the 23 experiments of this book. The remaining experiments can be completed with the addition of a HeNe class I laser, an optical power meter, and two scissor jacks for an additional $800. You can learn more about the kit and additional materials needed for all 23 experiments here.
