Principles of Scientific Inquiry: Wave Phenomena 2014

December 5, 2014
PSI Presentations

How do you build a short pulse laser only from materials available 100 years ago? How do you make color holograms, explore how a violin works, measure the "Ether wind"? How can you trap particles with light or build a flute?

These are some of the questions which this year's students addressed independently in their experimental projects for "Principles of Scientific Inquiry", the lab component of Physics 15c.

 See the slide show of some of their presentations and apparatus.
