- All of the material from Lab 11 are to be put away.
- Pasco 750 Lab interface with the following sensors:
- Pasco Light Sensor mounted on Slit accessory (Analog A) (C30.1)
with 8 pin DIN cable (C30.H)
- RMS (C3.1) mounted on Linear Translator (C30.4) (yellow DG1, black DG2)
- RMS (C3.1) mounted on Polarization Analyzer (OS-8533) (C30.3), (yellow DG3, black DG4)
- Pasco Optic Bench (B3.2)
- Linear Translator (OS-8535)Assembly with RMS (C30.4). See the setup instructions.
- Pasco Diode Laser (OS-8525A) (C30.1)
- Projection Screen (C30.4)
- Pasco Multiple Slit Set (OS-8523) (C30.2)
- Pasco Single Slit set (OS-8523) (C30.2)
- Pasco Polarization Analyzer (OS-8533) Assembly with RMS. (C30.3).
See the setup instructions.
- Polarizer on optical mount with bracket to hold RMS
- Polarizer on optical mount
- An additional Polaroid filter
Notes and tests:
- Put a screw in the base of the laser to hold it at the end of the track.
- Check that the laser lines up with the slit on the other end of the track, and adjust knobs on back of laser if necessary.
- Run the test file "2306_Lab12_Light_ test1.ds" Test that the RMS on the Polarization analyzer works properly. Turn the polarizer clockwise if facing the printed side and check that the angle reads positive. Next, test the light sensor and the RMS on the Linear Translator. Move the apparatus from from right to left with the laser on and see if you get a reasonable curve.
