Interactive Physics and Math with Java: a set of applet modules created by Sergey Kiselev and Tanya Yanovsky-Kiselev: The following are particularly relevant or insightful:
Physics 2000: a set of applet modules created and maintained by the Physics Department of the University of Colorado at Boulder. The following are particularly relevant or insightful:
- Electromagnetic Waves
- Catch the Wave
- Stadium Waves
- Charges and Fields
- The Electric Force
- Electric Force Fields

UCD ElectroCard - An Exploratorium for Electromagnetism: another set of applet modules created and maintained by the Physics Department at the University of California at Davis. The following are particularly relevant or insightful:
Virtual Labs and Simulations: an extensive collection of links to physics applets.
Physik - Interaktiv I: another extensive collection of links to physics applets.
NTNU Virtual Physics Laboratory: Professor Fu-Kwun Hwang of the National Taiwan Normal University has created a wonderful set of applets and two valuable Shockwave optical animations. The site NTNU Virtual Physics Laboratory lists a huge number of mirror sites. We have found the UCLA mirror site to be one of the best maintained. The following animations are particularly relevant or insightful:
- Under the "Electromagnetic" menu the applet entitled Propagation of Electromagnetic Waves (local copy) is outstanding!!
- Under the "Optics and Light" menu most of the animations are well worth exploring, but the several color shows should not be missed!!
Miscellaneous Simple Calculators:
- Spectrum Tuner Applet: a quickly calculates wavelength, frequency, and energy associated with a given point on a graphical electromagnetic spectrum by Guy McArthur at the University of Arizona.
- In case you even need to use it, here is the Luminance: Unit Conversion

The Laser Adventure by Rami Arieli
Roman Pfaff's "first shocked science lab on the www" at Explore Science - Interactive has some interesting elementary optics and electromagnetism demonstrations.
Shockwave demonstrations require installation of the Shockwave plug-in.
