When electromagnetic waves encounter an obstacle, they are proportionately reflected, transmitted and absorbed. In this experiment, it is proved that the sum of the proportions is conserved.
- Convenient all-in-one set includes control unit, transmitter and receiver as horn antennae, microwave probe, microwave benches, grating, slit plates, prism, and reflection/absorption plates
- With the same set, all aspects of microwave physics can be studied quantitatively: polariziation, reflection, transmission, refraction, propagation, diffraction, interference, inverse square law, standing waves, conservation of energy in reflection and transmission
- Very detailed experiment guides for all experiments
The relationship between reflection and transmission is determined by means of a polarization grating.
