Description
Diffraction through a Single Slit Resulting interference pattern with consist of a series of alternating light and dark bands The width of the central bright band is twice the width of the other bright bands. 2λL w = a w – width of the central band of light L – distance between the slit and the screen a – width of the slit Diffraction through a Circular Aperture Circular diffraction pattern Diameter of bright central maxima measured as distance from one side of the first dark ring to the other 2.44λL w = D w – diameter of the central maxima of light D
