Paper Abstract

New educational kit and methodological instructions are presented in the paper. Methodological approaches and the kit design are improved and extended on the base of 10 years experience of the use of previous version of equipment. Basic approaches are the following: modular structure of the equipment with multifunctional blocks which are easily replaced; simplicity and unity of training equipment; diversity of light sources; possibility to rearrange the equipment and techniques both for universities and for high school; modified optical schemes for some experiments. The set of equipment includes: compact desk holographic installation, Hartle device, focal monochromator on the base of holographic lens, optical bench, prisms, lenses, gratings, collimator, several light sources (laser, LEDs, lamp), etc. Methodological instructions provided with this set include the list of demonstrations and laboratory works as well as links between various experiments and phenomena. Methodological instructions give recommendations for more than 50 demonstrations and practical works in various domains: light diffraction, interference of light, holography, geometric optics, Fourier optics, polarization effects, optics of spectrums, fiber optics, as well as a combination of the effects.
