Paper Abstract

The present talk describes some optical schemes for the formation of real images of persons in space when they look into the particular optical devices. When a person looks into the ordinary plane mirror, he sees his left-handed image located behind the mirror. It will be interesting and demonstrative of optical principles if one can devise a system by looking at which, a person sees his real erect image suspended in space in front of the device. These devices should not be very complicated and should be capable of easy fabri-cation involving plane and spherical reflecting or refracting surfaces. A few such devices are described with their geometrical and physical interrelationships. Some of these are constructed in small size and demonstrated. But to be very effective and impressive, they have to be constructed using large elements. Some suggestions are made to make these reasonably inexpensive and hence possibly can be displayed in any science museum.
