Paper Abstract

We present an educational resource based in a virtual optical laboratory for undergraduate students. It consists in a web-based textbook with several applets to illustrate the theory and simplify the teaching tasks in the classroom. These programs can also be used as a method for self-learning in an on-line environment. Applets are written in Java language using the Java Network Launching Protocol (JNPL) for avoiding problems related with the use of specific browsers or Java interpreters versions.
