Diffraction is one of the remarkable consequences of the wave nature of light. In this experiment you will study diffraction patterns for single slit and double slit arrangements. Furthermore you will explore techniques in image analysis for quantitative evaluation of the phenomenon.
|Software Code||Simulation and Matlab codes for analysis of diffraction.
