Fluorescence Spectra Feature Summary

Featured Tracker Packages
Fluorescence Spectra
The Fluorescence Spectra experiment uses Tracker to explore fluorescence and fluorescent lamps. Students observe the spectra directly, measure brightness versus wavelength in Tracker, and answer qualitative and quantitative questions. The spectra include a fluorescent dye, a mercury lamp and two fluorescent lamps, all with red and green laser spots added for easy calibration.
