Detail Page

written by Steffen Maus
This page is a cost-free scriptable simulation of an Optics Bench.   Lenses, point sources of light, parallel sources of light, objects and an iris can be placed and moved on the optics bench.  Optics benches are sturdy rails onto which components such as light sources and lenses are bolted down and shifted lengthwise to conduct simple experiments or classroom demonstrations.

Please note that this resource requires Java Applet Plug-in.
