Starter’s Kit


The K-Optics Starter’s Kit is the perfect tool to get started with optics experiments. This kit is a low-cost modular setup that is designed to integrate seamlessly with the K-Optics ecosystem of parts. The design is based around injection molded, engineering-grade polymers to reduce costs and keep many of the stabilizing properties of traditional optical tables as well as allow relatively easy carrying for enhanced mobility. This kit comes equipped with everything needed to perform the two basic experiments of Ray Optics and Slit Diffraction.

Ray Optics

In the Ray Optics Experiment, users will learn the behavior of light as rays and its characteristics. Reflection, refraction, Snell’s law, and lenses are among the subjects of study in this module.

Slit Diffraction

In the Slit Diffraction Experiment, users will learn about diffraction and spatial interference of light, as behaviors of a wave. Varying sizes and densities of slits and gratings are available to afford users a wide range of examples of diffraction and interference. Coherence of waves, in addition to the Huygens principle are among the subjects of study in this module as fundamental principles of interference.

The Starter’s Kit is expandable to the Advanced Kit (2x1 or 2x2) which includes an additional demonstration of interference in the Michelson interferometer. The Advanced Kit includes a variety of additional parts and products from the K-Optics ecosystem, including additional mounts, lenses, mirrors, and more!
