UNIVERSITY

Here, we would like to briefly present just a few examples of our more popular solutions for physics training and education.

PHOTONICS

The relatively new discipline of photonics is concerned with exploring the fundamentals and practical applications of optical processes and technologies. 

Whether it is in illumination systems, industrial manufacture & quality assurance or communications engineering – there is no getting around the field of photonics. As its importance and growth in terms of applications continue to grow, its significance in academia, research and training also gains in equal measure.

The foundations for this science are to be found in the possibilities and potentialities for the controlled generation and modulation of light. For this the photon must be considered from two sides, i.e. as both a particle and a wave.

With the LEYBOLD Photonics Science Kit, comprehensive experiments can be performed on the following primary topics:

  • Design of different types of lasers: HeNe-gas lasers, Nd:YAG solid-state lasers, erbium-doped fibre lasers
  • Short laser pulse generation
  • Fibre-optic technology
  • High-resolution spectroscopy
  • Applications of optical instrumentation:Interferometers, e.g. as vibrometers, ring laser gyroscopes

PHYSICS EXPERIMENTS FOR PRACTICALS AND DEMONSTRATIONS

The LEYBOLD equipment sets for physics contain more than 450 experiments, all tailored to meet the experiment requirements of practicals. In addition, they can also be used for demonstration purposes in lectures.

The accompanying instructions are used for assembly, set-up, evaluations and additional experiment information and offer valuable support to the lecturer or the supervisor in charge of practicals. Thanks to the highly functional design and the equipment’s high quality standards, you can be certain that your experiment can be carried out problem-free.

SECONDARY SCHOOLS

The LEYBOLD science kit programme offers the right answers for every instructional setting and any academic level. Here, we would like to briefly present just a few examples of our more popular solutions for physics training and education. 

 

STUDENT EXPERIMENTS IN PHYSICS

BASIC SCIENCE KITS FOR SECONDARY EDUCATION

The student experiment system for secondary schools (typically 10-16 years of age) offers experiment kits and equipment sets in line with the current curricula covering basic experimentation in physics, chemistry and biology.

Basic Science Kits for Physics:

  • In approx.100 simple experiments for students, the principles of mechanics, heat, electricity and optics are covered.
  • Rugged, easy and with the ideal price-performance ratio
  • Quick set-up and disassembly
  • Experiment literature designed for students and teacher worksheets for the purpose of checking results

ADVANCED SCIENCE KITS FOR HIGHER EDUCATION UP TO UNIVERSITY LEVEL

The Advanced Science Kits system with an experimentation capacity of approx. 1,000 experiments offers the most extensive experiment selection available, covering every science subject. The modular design allows the kits to be used not only for basic experiments in secondary schools, but also for more demanding experimentation required in higher education up to university level (16-21 years old).

Advanced Science Kits in Physics:

  • Approx. 450 experiments cover the principles of mechanics, heat, electricity and optics
  • Thanks to their modular design, a few pieces of equipment provide lots of experimenting
  • Quick and easy set-up and disassembly
  • Experiment literature designed for students and teacher worksheets for the purpose of checking results

 

DEMONSTRATION EXPERIMENTS FOR PHYSICS

../../fileadmin/user upload/LD Didactic/Demo Physik

We offer you an extensive programme of special experiments for demonstrations. The accompanying instructional information guarantees well-structured and time-efficient teacher preparation. Thanks to the functional design and high quality standards of our equipment, you can rest assured that your experiment can be conducted without a hitch.

 

The more than 250 EXPERIMENT KITS (Link to catalogue overview page) correspond to prevalent educational requirements and will play an important role in your students’ success:

  • The test objects and the measuring instruments are always positioned in the foreground and clearly visible from a distance.
  • Cabling and hose connections are laid out neatly and clearly
  • The experiment can be carried out in a logical step-by-step sequence

 

DATA ACQUISITION AND ANALYSIS USING CASSY

../../fileadmin/user upload/LD Didactic/CASSY Physik

The CASSY system has evolved over the past 25 years to become the most successful and popular solution for experiment-based data acquisition and analysis used in lower and intermediate secondary schools.

The CASSY system consists of:

  • Basic equipment sets to match each and every teaching situation (student and demonstration experiments)
  • Over 50 sensors to detect more than 100 measurement variables in physics, chemistry and biology
  • Software designed specifically for data acquisition and measurement analysis

Benefits at a glance:

  • Modular and compatible: Basic equipment, sensors and software can be combined as needed, making the system freely expandable.
  • Operation is easy and intuitive
  • Plug & play features
  • High standards both technically and educationally
  • Easy to use with whiteboards
