PLEASE REQUEST DEMOS WELL IN ADVANCE
Due to Physics Building renovations, the lead time to set up demo requests has increased due to the need to transport equipment across campus. Please be kind and let me know well ahead of time what you need.

You have selected the following Demos:
Light Pipe and Fiber Optics
Purpose:To demonstrate the transmission of light by means of total internal reflection.
Procedure:Place the pipe/bundle in front of the source and note the light that comes from the other end. The absence of any light from the edges of the pipe/bundle is good evidence for the high efficiency of the devices. The fiber optic bundle also has extremely good resolution but must be examined closely.
