View Resource Diffraction

This activity from the Exploratorium provides an introduction to the diffraction of light which indicates its wavelike properties. Two pencils are used to create a slit through which a flashlight bulb or candle?s light is examined. The site contains an explanation of the observed interference patterns, additional materials that can be experimented with, and an extension activity. This activity i...

View Resource Introduction to Quantum Mechanics Activity

This resource provides an introductory activity on "the basic quantum mechanics concepts about electrons that are essential to understanding modern and future technology- especially nanotechnology that will be vitally important to the industry." Core concepts include probability distribution, electron waves, diffraction, interference, tunneling, bound states and excited states. The interactive...

View Resource Introduction to Quantum Mechanics: Assessment

This resource provides an assessment for students who have just learned the basics of quantum mechanics. The accompanying interactive lesson which may be used before this assessment is also available. This five question assessment covers the concept of probability, electrons and some other basic concepts related to quantum mechanics. Although a preview of the activity is available, instructors...

View Resource Interference and Diffraction

In this video from the ICT Center, learn about interference and diffraction. See how the wave properties of light are used to explain interference patterns on a screen, and learn about related technologies such as the Fabry-Perot cavity, Bragg gratings, interference filters, and antireflection coatings. In addition, learn how diffraction patterns are produced, and study the grating...

View Resource X-ray Crystallography

In this activity, by the Concord Consortium's Molecular Literacy project, students are introduced to the fundamental principles of X-ray crystallography and "guides students through a series of activities for learning how structural information can be derived from X-ray diffraction patterns." Upon completion of this activity students should be able to describe what can be detected with X-ray...
