When electromagnetic waves encounter an obstacle, phenomena like reflection, transmission and refraction occur. In the present experiment these phenomena are verified and described by means of microwaves.
- 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
Reflection, absorption and refraction are illustrated using various materials and the law of reflection is verified (angle of incidence = angle of reflection).
