Educational Interferometer

Educational Interferometer
The Phase II program demonstrated an ultra-stable-yet simple and inexpensive-interferometer that is suitable for university laboratory experiments. We described several such experiments in a detailed manual developed during Phase II. At the completion of Phase II, we licensed and transferred the technology to TeachSpin, a company that specializes in marketing laboratory-experiment kits to educational institutions.

TeachSpin has successfully licensed and brought this technology to the market in the form of a $12,500 research-grade interferometry kit, "Modern Interferometry," that is designed specifically for advanced student laboratory instruction (see figure). http://www.teachspin.com/instruments/moderni/

SRL will benefit from royalties and from the satisfaction of contributing to the education of university students in precision interferometry.
