Item Picture
written by Michael Fowler and Jacquie Hui Wan Ching
This is a simulation of Young's double slit experiment. The simulation allows the user to change all usual parameters like wavelength and source separation. Most noteworthy, is the simulation's illustration of the path difference, and how it relates to the wavelength, for each of the points on the screen.
