path difference (x)  phase difference (?)

When x < 

When x


Interference and diffraction

Two oscillators or two sources

To point P

d

dsin

Phase difference when arriving at P is

Original phase difference

phase from path difference


Interference and diffraction

n equally spaced oscillators; equal amplitude; different

in phase (different starting phase, different path length)

x = 0 and x = d/2; path difference BC = dsin/2.

 phase difference = (2/)*dsin/2 = dsin/

Destructive interference: dsin/ = , 2, 3, …= n.

 dsin = n.


Interference and diffraction

Resolution of single slit and circular aperture:

The Rayleigh Criterion

Well Resolved

Barely Resolved

n sets of double slits


Interference and diffraction

What about n slits each with a slit width of d?

d

a


Interference and diffraction

If d is very small, upper cap is more flat! a equals to a lot d!

Integer

Constructive interference: |acos-acos0| = h

Similarly in the y direction: |bcos - bcos0| = k

Similarly in the y direction: |ccos - ccos0| = l
