Are you interested in particle traps? Do you have access to a 3D printer? Then you should have a look at our new paper “3D-Printable Model of a Particle Trap: Development and Use in the Physics Classroom” recently published in the Journal of Open Hardware.
In this paper, you can learn more about the design process of the hardware, but also about the design of our worksheets, which take students’ conceptions into account. In addition, you can find all 3D files and a detailed construction manual online.
