Laser Experiments for Beginners
Laser Experiments for Beginners provides the perfect blueprint for those who wish to work with one of the most remarkable research tools of the twentieth century: the laser. Ideally suited for high school and university science teachers, the experiments in this book require only a low-cost, low-power red laser (readily available for under $100). This book presents a series of hands-on experiments that can be used for in-class demonstrations or student activities. Included are quick-reference instructions to help the reader identify needed equipment; follow recommended safety practices; and select the desired experiment(s), each of which is rated according to conceptual and experimental difficulty.
Developed by renowned Stanford researcher Richard Zare in collaboration with Bertrand Spencer, Dwight Springer, and Matthew Jacobson, Laser Experiments for Beginners will introduce the student to state-of-the-art laser research techniques. It is designed to enhance existing courses in chemistry, physics, and biology.
