The PASCO Scientific Incandescent Light Source, is intended to be used by students in an educational environment to perform experiments in basic optics.
The Incandescent Light Source produces a light output of approximately 15 candle power in the visible spectrum. It is powered by a very stable, well-regulated power supply that ensures the light source output will not drift in intensity. The output is bright enough and stable enough to perform demanding experiments such as investigations into Young’s coherence.
The Incandescent Light Source mounts magnetically to the PASCO Introductory and Advanced Optics System’s optical benches. A knob is provided on the top of the unit to adjust the filament position of the lamp.
