Varying Prism1970-01-01T00:00:00+00:00Animation of monochromatic (single colour) light beams passing through a triangular prism whose shape varies with time. As the prism widens at its base so the rays are bent (refracted) more. Prisms have many uses in optical devices.PT3S//d3e1m60ptf1oym.cloudfront.net/2b2fbca9-abac-490e-b213-bfba00d265de/physics-anim-prism-rays-FHD-Russell-Kightley_xlarge.jpghttps://www.scientific.pictures/-/galleries/optics/-/medias/2b2fbca9-abac-490e-b213-bfba00d265de/pricehttps://www.scientific.pictures/-/galleries/optics/-/medias/2b2fbca9-abac-490e-b213-bfba00d265de/price
Photons reflecting from a plane mirror
Animation showing a light source firing photons at a plane mirror. The photons are reflected in a way analogous to balls bouncing from a surface (it doesn't really happen this way). Although photons are massless, they do carry energy at the speed of light and this gives them momentum.

MYOPIA (short sightedness)1970-01-01T00:00:00+00:00MYOPIA (short sightedness). A normal eye elongates (in the animation - not in reality) and so becomes myopic. A diverging (bi-concave) lens then drops in front of the eye, correcting the myopia. This animation is actually a simulation since the paths o...PT3S//d3e1m60ptf1oym.cloudfront.net/d948706b-bfaa-434d-bd65-1e29a4edbf8e/EYE-MYOPIA-corrected-animation-FHD-Russell-Kightley_xlarge.jpghttps://www.scientific.pictures/-/galleries/optics/-/medias/d948706b-bfaa-434d-bd65-1e29a4edbf8e/pricehttps://www.scientific.pictures/-/galleries/optics/-/medias/d948706b-bfaa-434d-bd65-1e29a4edbf8e/price
