Complete Zeeman Effect Apparatus

Designed for modern physics labs at colleges and universities, this apparatus demonstrates the influence of a magnetic field on light emitted in a gas discharge, the Zeeman effect, and shows the quantum nature of light and the behavior of electrons in atoms emitting light. Experiments are recommended for advanced and college-level physics. The supplied software allows you to save the captured pattern in either .BMP or .JPG formats. The spectral line observed is the green line of mercury at 546.1 nm, which splits into 9 components. When the lines are observed perpendicular to the magnetic field direction, all 9 components will be visible. The included instruction manual contains sample activities and sample data.

Important: The magnet and power supply weigh about 80 lb. To accommodate the setup and computer, a space of about 7-1/2 x 2-1/2 ft (2 x 0.75 m) is needed.

About the camera: Due to rapid changes in camera models, the photo may not reflect the appearance of the supplied camera. Appropriate changes have been made to the setup instructions. For this reason the specifications for the camera are not provided.
