Just click on Shakespeare to get an insult.  You won't run out: there are about 32 million of them!

Wavelength Converter

I'd like to begin making a series of "Laser Tools," by which I mean simple apps that would be convenient for people like me working in an optics lab.  This first example, Wave Converter, converts in any direction between wavelength, frequency, wave number, angular wave number, effective temperature (T=Planck's Constant * frequency/Boltzmann's constant), Joules per photon, and eV per photon. 

Here's the icon:

Here's a screen-shot:

And, just to show that the conversions work, another:

Obviously, there are a ton more things that can be done here.  Stay tuned.
