When electromagnetic waves are bounced back and forth between two reflectors, a standing wave is formed. From the wavelength of the standing wave, the frequency of the waves can be determined.


  • 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 wavelength of a standing wave is measured and the frequency determined. By extrapolation of the oscillating state on the reflector is determined.
