- Single-slit experiment
- Intensity as a function of observation angle for a single-slit is constant
- Double-slit interference experiment
- Double-slit interference experiment: enlarged view
- Intensity as a function of observation angle for a double-slit experiment
- Interference experiment with
*N*finite slits - Intensity as a function of observation angle for an
*N*-slit experiment for the case*N*=6. In this case, principle maxima appear in the location of every sixth minima, so that there are five minima between principle maxima, and thus four lesser maxima between principle maxima. - Analysis of diffraction experiment with slit of finite width
- Intensity as a function of observation angle for a finite-slit experiment
*N*finite-slit interference experiment- Intensity as a function of observation angle for an
experiment with
*N*slits of finite width, where*N*is large (*N*=10) and the slits are spaced four times further apart than they are wide,*d*/*a*=3. Note how this pattern has every third principle maxima (except the central maximum) wiped away.
