The purpose of this web site is to provide Remote Controlled Labs (RCLs) to users on the internet. These are real experiments which can be executed by a client using a standard web browser interacting with a web server controlling the experiment. Web cams allow the user to observe the on-going experiment. The experiments are designed to encourage interactive exploration by students and emphasize the importance of experiments in physics.
The labs available include Millikan's oil-drop experiment, Rutherford scattering, the speed of light, the photoelectric effect, I-V characteristics, radioactivity, and control of robots, many of which can be adapted for an introductory classroom.
