This resource illustrates the interference patterns for diffraction through double slits. A series of sources, electrons, protons, neutron, photons, and pions, can be chosen for the virtual experiment. The energy of the source, the slit separation, and the flux rate can all be adjusted. The diffraction patterns are built from random flashes on a screen. The screens can be saved for comparison of different experiments.

Double Slit Diffraction:
Is Referenced By Matter Waves
Matter Waves uses the example of a double slit experiment to explore the wave-like properties of quantum particles.relation by Bruce Mason
Is Required By Light and Waves
The Light and Waves tutorial uses the double slit electron experiment to demonstrate the wave-like properties of electrons.relation by Bruce Mason
Is Required By Interpreting Wave Functions
Interpreting Wave Functions uses a Double Slit Diffraction simulation to demonstrate the need for a description of the measurement probability.relation by Bruce Mason
