Augmenting the fine beam tube: From hybrid measurements to magnetic field visualization


Augmenting the fine beam tube: From hybrid measurements to magnetic field visualization

Since the emergence of augmented reality (AR), it has

been a constant subject of educational research, as it can

improve conceptual understanding and generally promote learning. In addition, a motivational effect and improved interaction and collaboration through AR were observed. Recently, AR technologies have taken a major leap forward in development, such that head-mounted devices or smart glasses in particular are now finding their first applications in STEM education, especially in experiments.3-6 In line with these developments, we here present an AR experiment in electrodynamics for undergraduate laboratory courses in physics using real-time physical data from and virtual tools on mobile devices to both analyze and visualize physical phenomena.
