Experience real physics experiments in a multimedia setting.                                                     

In co-operation with: 

A multimedia museum tour featuring interactive screen experiments (ISEs). ISEs are real experiments displayed on a computer screen via photographs. They are not computer simulations; instead they document the real experiment as it actually happened, thus opening up whole new possibilities for physics experiments.

The user gains special insights into experiments under development in museums but not yet in operation.

The technical processes in such well-known devices as X-ray machines, neon tubes, TV sets, video cameras, electron microscopes and many more are vividly illustrated for easy understanding. You learn the ins and outs of real physical experiments in an interactive setting. And you experience interactively gas discharges, X-rays, line spectra, cathode rays, and the deflection of electron beams in magnetic fields, to mention just a few.

This virtual tour through three floors addresses three questions:

What are electrons?
What technical applications are there for electrons?
How are electrons used in research?

The discovery of the electron has fundamentally changed how we think about electricity. Completely new applications and devices emerged. Research possibilities also experienced an enormous expansion. Exhibits and experiments from the Technical University in Berlin and the German Museum in Munich put you on the trail of such famous physicists as Faraday, Helmholtz, Röntgen, Thomson, Hertz and others.

The author, Dr. Kirstein from the Institute for Atomic Physics and Didactics (IAPF) at the Technical University Berlin, has been creating multimedia products for over six years and has been awarded the Mediaprix for his work.
