Light

What properties does light have? Which experiment is among the most important in physics?
Licht
Sunlight

The laws of classical physics lose their validity in the microcosm. Nature is no longer structured continuously and the exact position of a particle at a certain point of time can no longer be determined. Quantum physics with its world of possibilities describes the dynamic processes in microscopic systems and replaces the world of facts.

The central topic of this station is the wave-particle duality, which is demonstrated by the example of light. Experiments with the electron diffraction tube complete this experimental unit.

Topics:

Speed of light, diffraction experiments, photoelectric effect, radiation energy, wave-particle duality, quantum objects
