Description:

This is an interactive tutorial on the topic of light refraction. It integrates background information with related Java simulations that allow you to explore the effects of refraction through a variety of mediums, refraction by a prism, light refraction observed in everyday life, and less common refractive effects such as mirage and looming images. This item is part of a larger Microscopy Primer developed by the National High Magnetic Field at Florida State University.
