Acrylic Index of Refraction Block



Acrylic Index of Refraction Block

Use the Acrylic Index of Refraction Block to measure and demonstrate refraction, total internal reflection, the index of refraction and more!

Clearly observe and measure how light bends as it passes from one medium to another – for example, from air (low refractive index) into an acrylic block (higher refractive index).

The specially formulated plastic highlights and makes light beams easy to see as they bend and pass through. This is an inexpensive and dramatic way to visualize refractive indices, plus, this block can be used for critical angle reflection demonstrations. Can be used with any laser, light ray box or laser pointer.
