Transmission holographic diffraction grating is mounted in 2” x 2” cardboard slide mounts and can be used for the direct viewing and analysis of spectra from different gas tubes and other light sources.
With 13,500 line/in, the quality of the spectrum produced is the brightest possible with a minimum of distracting visual noise. These gratings are great for experiments pertaining to the study of light or color and ideal for classroom demonstration or to mount in a simple spectroscope.
Each has one square inch of diffraction grating exposed and can be used in conjunction with colored film gels for additive and subtractive color demonstrations.

Diffraction gratings – that is, an optical component that splits light into beams travelling in different directions – exist in nature. James Gregory, the man who discovered the principles of diffraction gratings did so through by looking at bird feathers.
The iridescence of peacock feathers, mother-of-pearl and some butterflies are all caused by the principle of diffraction grating – regular structures that diffract light, splitting it into its component colors.
