Abstract

This paper proposes a remote education system, Virtual Photonics Experiments Network (V-PEN), for teaching photonics experiments. In this approach, teaching and learning photonics become easier by the V-PEN. A design procedure for transforming real experiments to online experiments is also proposed, and a Michelson interference system as an example is employed to describe the procedures of the online experiments. This photonics experiment platform has been used for a semester. The survey of learners' feedback is also presented.
