Helium Laser Kit

Bar Code: 1129

Description: This kit may be used to teach the history of the laser and its uses. The modulated laser may be used to demonstrate light beam transmissions, bar code reading (readers included), reflection, refraction, dispersion, diffraction, triangulation and many other concepts associated with light.
