The use of ISEs provide a particularly valuable contribution to the illustration of the basic concepts and phenomena of physics. Without a visual aid it is extremely difficult to translate direct experience in everyday life into physical systems. ISEs allow you to also actively investigate events which otherwise in natural sciences teaching would be impossible to experience directly due to safety reasons. This includes, for example, ionised radiation in physics and toxic substances in chemistry. You can learn about two interesting examples here (in German): Wireless Telegraphy, Acoustic Beats

The  ISE-Catalogue at MHSG has been developed in close collaboration with Dr. Jürgen Kirstein from Institute for Atomic Physics and Didactics at the Technical University Berlin and is continuously growing.  It currently boasts about 80 ISEs. Order the ISE-Catalogue

For a number of topics, the only experiments feasible – even with modern resources –  are those in which students or trainees no longer have direct contact with the basic phenomena. In experiments on the shadow cast by a human hand’s bone via an X-ray or, in other words, “the X-ray as the central projection of a roughly anastigmatic source”, it is impossible for students to experience this phenomenon in a visually descriptive manner or to exercise control over it. Apart from quantitatively analysable experiments, the ISE catalogue also features an array of qualitatively accessible phenomena, in particular ones where first-hand observation is limited or impossible. With ISEs, however, this dimension of natural sciences teaching is made possible for the first time. Students and teachers have access to numerous phenomenon which are barely tapped by traditional methods. This enables us, for example, to understand how an electron microscope works.
