Abstract [en]

The goal of this project was to create an intuitive and clear demonstrator

of the dening properties of quantum mechanics using single slit diraction

of light, which has quantum mechanical properties because of light's waveparticle

duality. In this report we will describe the process and thoughts

behind our project of creating a portable demonstration of the uncertainty

principle. By designing and building both a physical setup with a laser, a

slit, mirrors, lenses, beam-splitters, attenuators and cameras, and developing

software which displays images from the cameras in a clear user interface

with calculations we hope that students from high schools and gymnasiums

that visit Vetenskapens Hus at Alba Nova will learn something new while

using the demonstrator.
