After it has been demonstrated in lessons that light undergoes
interference, which can only be explained in the framework of
classical physics by postulating a wave character for light, the
question is now investigated of whether these are transverse or
This experiment is easy to perform and takes little time; it shows
that light waves must be transverse waves.
- Multifunctional light box - All-in-one: Can be used for geometric optics on the table, colour mixing and on an optical bench
- Extension with others sets at anytime, no additional light sources needed, recognition value for students
Send a light beam through two polarising filters and investigate
what happens when they are rotated against each other.
