Diffraction and Interference of Light Waves

1. Background

This experiment gives very clear graphical proof to students about the diffraction and interference nature of light waves. We can get similar results by replacing the light sensor and light source with sound sensors and 2 sound sources.

2. Objective

To observe the diffraction patterns of light.
To study the interference effects from two slits (Young's slits).

3. Equipment List

Datalogger interface connected to a PC
Light sensor
Double slits
Light source
