LEAI-30 Apparatus of Franck-Hertz Experiment - Basic Model

Note: oscilloscope not included


  • No preheating for Argon gas tube

  • Multiple modes: manual recording, oscilloscope viewing or data processing (digital oscilloscope needed)

  • Visible Argon tube

  • Optional data acquisition card for PC use via USB port


This LEAI-30 Franck-Hertz experiment apparatus is a low cost instrument to demonstrate the existence of Bohr atomic energy levels. Experimental results can be acquired by manual data recording, or viewed on an oscilloscope, or processed using a digital storage oscilloscope. No oscilloscope is necessary if an optional data acquisition (DAQ) card is ordered for use with a PC via USB port. It is an ideal teaching apparatus for physics laboratories at colleges and universities.
