Diffraction and Interference of Light Waves

How can you check if light shows wave properties? If light is a wave, it should bend around corners; it is not immediately apparent that light does bend around corners in the same way sound or water waves do. This model helps demonstrate that light does have these properties.

Can light waves interact to produce regions of darkness? Waveforms show destructive as well as constructive interference. This model demonstrates that light from more than one source can interact to produce regions of darkness.
