Optical Transform (X-Ray Diffraction): Demo Kit

0
Type: CP, D, I    |    Level: AP, Coll

Simulate X-ray diffraction using a visible laser and 2-D patterns on a transparency with the Optical Transform (X-Ray Diffraction) Kit. The kit includes a manual with directions, one each of the four different diffraction transparencies, and a full-page version of each transparency. The four diffraction transparencies have these patterns:

Optical Transform (X-ray Diffraction) Transparencies

0
Type: CP, D, I    |    Level: AP, Coll

When students have a Optical Transform (X-Ray Diffraction) Transparency and laser pointer, simulating X-ray diffraction becomes a hands-on activity. Students see the diffraction patterns by shining a laser through the transparency and projecting the patterns onto a screen or wall. The four different diffraction transparencies have these patterns:

  • Unit Cell: examples for changes in unit cell...
