Old but simple experiment about waves and light to demonstrate diffraction using pencil, tape and a candle or torch. Historical background and online tutorials on diffraction in which you can vary wavelength and aperture width, and see the results as wave fronts, and as an intensity graph. Bragg's Law and diffraction - how waves reveal the atomic structure of crystals.

When moving charges spiral in a magnetic field, they produce radiation as a result of their accelerations which is called synchrotron radiation. Blackbody radiation refers to an object or system which absorbs all radiation incident upon it and re-radiates energy which is characteristic of this radiating system. Units of radiation, description of risk of radiation, comparing old and new units with good links to other relevant parts of the site.
