A Solar Spectroscope Exhibit at Utah Valley University

 

A presentation from the 2019 Summer Meeting: Provo, UT

Abstract

We are building an instrument to project onto a screen a 2-meter-long spectrum made from "live" sunlight. The device will have sufficient resolution to show numerous absorption lines. This permanent exhibit in a science building at Utah Valley University will offer visitors the opportunity to learn more about light, the sun, atoms, energy levels, optics, and more.
