RODS w/o Magnet Board (Ray Optics Demonstration Set)


210,00 €

This set has been designed for a simple and clear demonstration of the principles of geometrical optics - transmission, reflection and refraction.

More details

The RODS set has turned out to be the best-selling product due to its simple design, user-friendliness and clear demonstration of basic principles of geometrical optics.

Complemented with all versions of Laser Ray Box (sold separately) the set improves the quality of teaching and offers new possibilities in comparison with the classic incandescent lamp.

With the use of a complementary Laser Ray Box, it is possible to demonstrate most of the elementary optic principles quickly and intuitively. Moreover, the demonstration of beams passing through the combination of several optical elements is possible, which enables effective demonstration and modeling of basic optical devices. Another remarkable advantage arises from the very low demand for room light conditions.

Ray Optics Demonstration Set using Laser Ray Box can be used in standard classrooms without any additional room darkening. It allows very good demonstration and visualization of the following optical phenomenons:

  • transmission of the light through the convex (concave) lens
  • transmission effect of an optical prism
  • reflection on the planar convex and concave mirror
  • refraction of the light
  • index of refraction values and others

The set also demonstrates:

  • function of healthy, short-sighted and far-sighted vision
  • correction of these aberrations by glasses
  • function of both, Galileo and Kepler telescopes, as well as photo camera, etc.
  • effect of the lens spherical aberration and its correction,
  • demonstrations of absolute reflection in the optical fiber 

All elements are taped with magnetized foil at the bottom, allowing intuitive attachment to a magnetic board. The set includes:

  • 8 different lenses
  • 3 types of mirrors
  • plan-parallel plate
  • right-angle prism
  • model of optical fiber
  • 6 example sheets

This version does not include a magnetic board.

Ray Optics Demonstration Set contains:

  • Instruction manual – printed
  • Optical models (14 pcs)
  • Example sheets (6 pcs) for very simple and quick preparation of demonstration:

A – model of the human eye

B – photo camera

C – Galileo telescope

D – Kepler telescope

E – spherical aberration of a lens, and its correction

F – refraction and reflection demonstration sheet
