Loughborough Wave Lab

Loughborough Wave Lab


Loughborough Wave Lab is an educational learning app designed to aid students in their understanding of electromagnetic wave concepts in an engaging and entertaining way!

Features include:
- Virtual pond
- Persistent Sinusoidal Pulses
- Virtual Ripple Tank
- Waveguide Simulator

Loughborough Wave Lab is intended to accompany teaching on Electromagnetic phenomena and to provide students with an interactive way of seeing these principles in action!

Additional Android Features:
- Dynamic Performance Scaling (set a desired frames per second for the simulation, and the resolution of the environment is adjusted on the fly to achieve that speed)

Developers:
Daniel Browne - Loughborough University
Guillermo Garrido Basurto - Instituto Tecnológico de Toluca
José Eduardo González Chavira - Instituto Tecnológico de Toluca
Ana Victoria Rodriguez Guerrero - Instituto Tecnológico de Toluca

Recent changes:
v2.0.1

- Minor bug fixes

v2.0.0

- Added Young's Double Slit simulation mode

- Educators can now author their own custom simulation files, upload them to a web server and then have Loughborough Wave Lab execute the simulations.

- Multiple Synchronised Point Sources Mode added

- Significant improvements to simulation speed and resolution on all devices

- Revamped the entire user interface for an improved and consistent user experience across platforms

Well-made Although the ability to watch waves propagate uninterrupted by anything other themselves is useful, this app gives no way to add barriers of any sort, severely limiting it to strictly basic uses. Looks pretty, but not helpful enough to warrant keeping it installed for long.

Intresting app... But still i'll give it 4 stars because their is no slit option to do experiments like diffraction and interfearence except the inbuilt double slit wave simulater.

Great app, but I've been playing around with this app for a long time now, throughout diffrent phones (mostly android 2.3) and it has run quite smooth considering their hardware. Now i have a Nexus 5 and I was looking forward to further experimenting with this app, thinking it would run really smooth and the complex wave phenomena to be developed fast, considering nexus 5 hardware. Anyway, the app seems to run really slow and poorly, it takes far too long to wait for waves to spread out and things to happen.

Great tool for undergraduates to explore EM principles

Cool, with one little bug... The app crashes occasionally for no apparently consistent reason. But aside from that, I enjoy this.
