Light
Explore bending of light between two media with different indices of refraction. See how changing from air to water to glass changes the bending angle. Play with prisms of different shapes and make rainbows.
A ray of light coming from the top left strikes the boundary surface of two media. (It is possible to choose the substances in both lists.) The medium which has the bigger index of refraction is painted blue, the other yellow. You can vary the incident ray with pressed mouse button.
Diffraction of light (i.e. the deviation of the linear propagation) and interference (i.e. the coherent superposition of light waves results in intensity maxima and minima) represent central phenomena of wave optics. Moreover, both phenomena are playing an essential role in techniques (e.g.
Do you ever wonder how a greenhouse gas affects the climate, or why the ozone layer is important? Use the sim to explore how light interacts with molecules in our atmosphere.
You will see that there is a difference between reality and theory.
