  • 47 experimental examples

  • Cost effective solution

  • Detailed instructional manual

  • Easy alignment


The LEOK-7 Laser Optical Demonstration Instrument is developed as a low-cost solution to lower class optical education at universities and colleges. It provides a complete set of optical and mechanical components as well as a light source.


A laser beam emitted from a diode laser is expanded by a cylindrical lens, and is further split into three equally intense beams by a beam splitter assembly. The position and direction of each beam can be adjusted independently from other beams as viewed on a white board. A rotational disk with angular scales is located at the center of the board with a hole in the disk center for mounting various optical components. By inserting various components into the optical path, numerous optics experiments can be demonstrated covering ray optics, imaging optics, and optical instruments. 

A list of 47 experimental examples can be conducted as follows:


1. Rectilinear propagation of light rays
