This is the full tutorial by the same authors on wave-particle duality.  It traces the early history of light refraction theory, from Huygens' 18th century work through the classic double slit experiment.  Also included are four related interactive Java simulations.

This is a companion simulation on light refraction.  Students use a slider to change the incident angle and observe the light beam behaving in both a particle-like and wave-like manner.
