Cornell University

Department of Physics

Physics 214 September 13, 2001

The purpose of these notes is to understand interference in d>1 dimensions, particularly diffraction and diffraction gratings as appear in Lab 3. The most important parts to go over before doing the lab are the interpretation sections, Sections & 5.2, and the formulas which go along with them, Eqs. 131719 & 20.
