Visual Scientifics Diffraction

Item # 753170

The Visual Scientifics diffraction experiment is fast and easy to set up and explores the concept of wave particle duality, which is typically difficult to understand and construct without an expensive optical bench. Students derive and experimentally prove the relationship y = (mλL)/d. Includes mounted laser, posts, various diffraction gratings, holder, and instructions; ruler is needed but not supplied. Requires Visual Scientifics Base (item #753150) and Back Board (item #753152) for use.

Grade 8-College. When white light travels from one medium to another, such as from air to glass, the light slows down and bends. The frequency of the light determines how much the light bends; therefore, shining white light through a prism will sort the light by its frequency. The higher the frequency of light, the more it bends—this is called dispersion of light. Many spectroscopes use a prism to separate white light into its spectrum; however, this spectroscope uses a diffraction grating. Similarly, when white light travels through a double-slit diffraction grating, an interference pattern emerges that is dependent on the wavelength of light. A diffraction grating will also reveal a spectrum.
