I want wonderful things about it,intersting functions o even a meaningful exmple for better understanding.

Well.. There are so many. i'm not sure I'm getting what you want here but you can look for some basic examples/applications of optics like kaleidoscope, telescope, microscope.. Etc...

There are also some interesting experiments like the double-slit experiment.

Studying about the true nature of light is also interesting.

Could you be a little more specific with that kind of information you want? If you want a broad overview on Optics, just go to wikipedia, type in Optics, and browse to your hearts content.

thank you,i think it would be good but not enough if you could tell me s.th more than these because they are ordinary things that everbody knows about that.

There are also some interesting experiments like the double-slit experiment.

it would be great

yes of course...

very good and usefull thanks alot

I'm asking you...
I dont want the high school subjects and lessons or even simple lessons of university,I want a subject wich is somehow complex and isnot known by everybody.
to tell you simply I want a subject which is intresting by everybody because they havent seen it before and doesnt have information about it.
I wish that I could tell you what I mean.
I'm really sorry because my english is not very good!
