IB Physics: Student notes: 9.2-9.4 Diffraction and interference of light

So far we have dealt with diffraction and interference on a qualitative level; by now you should understand the basics and make some predictions of increases or decreases but not calculate values. You"ll know that reducing the width of a single slit increases the width of the central diffraction maxima but can"t calculate how wide it is. You"ll know that double slits produce interference fringes but can"t calculate how...
