Description:

This item is an interactive Java simulation for introductory physics students on the topic of refraction. It explores how changes to the incident angle and refractive index differential affect the refraction angle of monochromatic light in two unlike media. Users may choose from more than a dozen materials ranging from low to high refractive index values. Incident angle and wavelength may also be controlled. This item is part of a larger collection of materials on optics and microscopy developed by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory and Florida State University.
