Because of the nature of this product, my usual evaluation format will not be used. This will just be a brief quasi-informational web page with three photographs on it.

* This is the current (mid-2010) price, and the furnished URL shows you the contents of the currently-available Laser Optics Lab, which may not be exactly the same as in this vintage (circa. early-1980s) version.

This is the Metrologic Laser Optics Lab. It consists of a number of discrete optical and mounting components, plus a steel optical bench so that all of these parts (along with their magnetic mounting fixtures) have a flat, level surface to go.

Using this kit, there are 35 experiments you can perform, ranging from scattering of light, to double-slit diffraction experiments, even measuring the curvature of the earth.

I have not yet had the time to mess around with this kit, so this page may seem rather bare -- more so than you probably expected -- for the immediate future anyway.

Test unit was sent with a Metrologic ML-868 Neon Laser that I purchased on Ebay on 02-15-07 (or "15 Feb 2007" if you prefer).
