If I won, the money would be enough for 2 photonics explorer kits. Which would be fantastic for students! Each kit has:
10 aluminium mirrors (7×7 cm)
10 colour filter sets (7×4 cm) including red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow
10 LED modules with red, green and blue LEDs
10 sets of robust plastic lenses with the focal lengths 30 mm, -30 mm, and 150 mm
20 polarisers (7×5 cm)
5 m polymer optical fibre
10 eyesafe Lasers
10 diffraction gratings
10 foils with slit and double slit for optical diffraction experiments
That’s enough stuff for about 20 students to do some really cool experiments on optics and lasers. So If I can get two of those it’ll make 40 students really happy!
Maybe IAEGMOOH can up the prize money next year :D.
