Hi, I am trying to find some information on a piece of equipment which I have never used in a hurry.
We had this in the cupboard for years, it looks like this one www.eiscolabs.com/products/ph0621
I don't have the holder for the prism, but a flint prism we have looks suitable. not sure what the holder seen in the bottom right of the eisco photo does. I guess grating but could not get anything with a grating does it need a reflection grating?
sorry but year 12 are doing projects and its fairly hectic
there is also an article on teh wiki www.techknow.org.uk/wiki/index.php?title=Spectrometer
they are surprisingly easy to setup, once you work out what all the knobs are and have done it once.
we have about 5 different versions here. That style (ours is blue I think branded Philip Harris, older than my time here) is our least favourite of them all.
Thank you, this will certainly help me to make use of this and I like the idea of using a camera to let a whole class see.
For now the student who wanted to use it, is doing a different project and I have to leave this until the summer break.
