This is a Java applet that creates surface plots of the spherical harmonics. The user can set the L and m indices and the resolution of the plot. There is a restriction that L must be less than or equal to 5. Results are shown as either the amplitude of the function colored by the complex phase or the real part of the function illuminated by an external light source. Plots may be rotated in three dimensions.
