Illustrate the Wave Nature of Light


An undergraduate quantum physics course is requesting a notebook or tool with interactive visualizations to illustrate the wave nature of light.

Students should be able to change the wavelength of light and visualize the change in placement on the electromagnetic spectrum, including the colors of the visible spectrum as well as UV and X-rays.

The notebook or tool may be listed in your public profile. This project is voluntary and there will be no compensation.

If you choose to create a notebook, please consider using Jupyter Widgets to bring the concept to life.
