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.

  1. Doug, this app looks very useful! I have minor suggestion about formatting when displaying the numbers, for instance 6.328e2 would be more readable in 632.8 nm (or display in micron). Also, another useful feature that you can perhaps add would be to put dlam-dnu conversion.
    Great job! Keep them coming!
