Spectrometer and spectrum tubes

Different lights produce light in different ways, and so produce very different spectra. With a spectroscope you can investigate the hidden depths of light.


We have built these as outreach kit and exhibits, with different light sources to look at including a variety of white light sources, a selection of gas discharge tubes and looking at fluorescent materials.

Heat sensitive plastic

This is a cheap simple exhibit and allows visitors to make a (tempory) mark on the exhibition. The plastic has a transition temperature and you may find that you need more than one version for summer and winter if the temperature of your gallery (and visitors) changes too much.
