The Open Source Physics website will be unavailable Friday evening through Saturday afternoon as electrical work occurs in the American Center of Physics server room. Down time will begin at 6PM Eastern Time on Friday. Service is expected to resume by 6PM on Saturday, July 30.
Diffraction and Interference Model: Single and Double Slits
The Diffraction and Interference Model: Single and Double Slits shows diffraction and interference patterns from a single slit, double sources and double slits. The user can change the source wavelength, slit width, separation and distance between slit and screen.
The Diffraction and Interference Model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_bu_Diffraction_Interference.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
Please note that this resource requires
