Two slit interference Young demonstrated light behaved as a wave. Bright fringes occurred at angles For small angles
QUIZ # 9 Two narrow slits 0.04 mm apart are illuminated by light from a HeNe laser (λ = 633 nm). A. What is the angle of the first (m = 1) bright fringe? B. What is the angle of the thirtieth bright fringe? Slide 17-11

The Intensity Pattern Due to a Diffraction Grating Slide 17-14
The Fringes Become Very Narrow as the Number of Slits is Increased Slide 17-15
A Diffraction Grating Splits Light into the Wavelengths That Make It Up Slide 17-16
All waves spread out after passing through a small enough gap in a barrier. This phenomenon is known as 1.Antireflection 2.double-slit interference 3.Refraction 4.diffraction
