Description:

This applet displays ray diagrams for combinations of thin lenses, mirrors, apertures, and various light sources. The user can place objects on the virtual optics bench, change their foci, and point light sources or direct a beam to see the resulting ray diagram. The applet is also designed to be modified for special cases such as fiber optics. The site contains instructions on how to modify the applet, as well as examples. The site also contains a virtual lab exercise to accompany the applet and problems for students to solve by using the applet.
