Optics Instrumentation Lab

The optics laboratory is designed to accommodate experiments that deals with the visible part of the electromagnetic spectrum and those that primarily involves visual observations relating to the action of light. This laboratory is unique in the way the room is able to create an environment that submerges students in near-complete darkness to carry out optical experiments. The equipment and set-ups in the optic laboratory allows one to study various phenomena such as electron diffraction, refraction and polarization of light, and photoconductivity.
