Using light to detect cancer

In this 1-lesson, hands-on workshop, your students can learn how physicists at the University of Exeter are detecting oesophageal cancer, in their research funded by Cancer Research UK.

We explore simple harmonic oscillators, travelling waves, sound waves in solids, and electromagnetism. Most suitable for KS5.

All the learning resources, including a teacher guide, student worksheet and short demo guides, are available at the link above.
