The "Wow" Factor
Housed at the Advanced Proton Source visitors center at a local National Laboratory, Illinois. A permanent exhibit demonstrating the principles of diffraction.  A laser beam is directed through targets selected by rotating a precision magazine of eight slide carriers. The resulting diffraction pattern is displayed directly on a white target screen and in a much larger version on the video monitor above.
