View Resource Spectra

Spectra is a website illustrating how astronomers use spectra to understand what stars are made of, their structures, and their evolution. The page begins with an introduction to the electromagnetic spectrum and then goes into detail about the properties of light. Then it discusses how matter both creates and destroys radiation. It goes on to interpret absorption and emission lines. The website...

View Resource The Optics of Spectroscopy: A Tutorial

This site provides a tutorial on electromagnetic waves using animated graphics. The tutorial gives the student the ability to visualize circularly polarized waves, the superposition of various types of polarized waves, and the change that results when the EM waves interact with matter.

View Resource The Wave Concepts Inventory-an assessment tool for courses in electromagnetic engineering

This is a link to an abstract of the article. Users must login to view the entire article. The Foundation Coalition at Arizona State University offered for the first time a novel upper division integrated course in Electrical Engineering in the fall '97 semester. The courses involved were (1) an introduction to the properties of electronic materials and (2) the first course for EE majors in...

View Resource Magnetism

This site, created and curated by David Stern, presents the basic ideas of magnetism and applies these ideas to the earth's magnetic field. There are several useful diagrams and pictures interspersed throughout this lesson, as well as links to more detailed subjects. This is an introduction to a larger collection on exploring the Earth's magnetosphere. A Spanish translation is available.

View Resource Close Up of the Aurora

These web pages, authored and curated by David Stern, provide an introduction to the aurora and the physical mechanisms that cause it. They include details about auroral imaging, particularly from satellites, and the fields that give rise to the charge motion that causes the aurora. This is part of a larger web site, "The Exploration of the Earth's Magnetosphere." Translations in Spanish and...
