Physics 331, Fall 2011 Optics Laboratory Course Information Syllabus (PDF) Notebook and Report Writing (PDF) Lab Report Grading Standards (PDF) Overview of Experiments (PDF) Experiments Speed of Light Concave Diffraction Grating Fabry-Perot Interferometer Michelson Interferometer Fraunhofer and Fresnel Diffraction Reflection from an Air-Dielectric Interface Faraday Rotation Holography Physics 331 Home The Speed of Light Measured with a Pulsed Laser A laser is pulsed at 1 MHz, and the laser light pulses are bounced off of a mirror and then detected by a fast detector. The time between the sending and recieving pulses is used to time the transit of light. The answer is 2.99792458×10 10 cm/s, what is the question? Important Information Concerning the Speed of Light Experiment For this experiment only, everyone will do the same experiment during the same week, and groups can include up to 4 students. You will need to write all your reports following the posted lab practice and report writing procedure:
