This cardboard kit will enable you to construct a fully functional hand spectroscope. You will be able to view the light spectrum, and also measure the wavelengths of spectral lines. The kit contains the cardboard case for the spectroscope, a diffraction grating with 900 lines per mm, an eyepiece lens, a film with a nanometre scale (750 to 440 mm) and a 0.3 mm light slit. Construction of the spectroscope will take about an hour, and you will need the following tools - a pair of scissors, a sharp cutting knife, a blunt knife for making grooves so the flaps fold neatly, some adhesive tape and a solvent containing all-purpose glue.


Full instructions are included.

The design is very ingenious, but correct assembly would be a little easier if the instructions were more precise, particularly with the mounting of the black strip to the relevant flaps, and the positioning of the diffraction grating. Since the grating supplied is rectangular it would be easy to state the orientation required to have the lines parallel with the light-slot, rather than leaving it to trial and error. However, overall it is a very impressive instrument for the price.

A bit smaller and more fragile than I expected, but it works well.

Very precise spectroscope, I used it while teaching and compared with a more sophisticated spectroscope, the difference never excede 5 nm.
