Description:

The EJS Thick Lens model allows the user to simulate a lens (mirror) by adjusting the physical properties of a transparent (reflecting) object and observing the object's effect on a beam of light.  The user can adjust the concavity of the sides, the index of refraction and its environment, and the height and width of the object as well as the size of the incident light and the horizontal position of the transparent object.  Spherical aberration can be observed at large angles. You can examine and modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item. Ejs Thiuck Lens model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_ntnu_optics_ThickLens.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. Ejs is a part of the Open Source Physics Project and is designed to make it easier to access, modify, and generate computer models. Additional Ejs models for optics are available. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Ejs.
