Item Picture
written by the Kansas State Physics Education Research Group and Dean A. Zollman
This resource illustrates the interference patterns for diffraction through double slits.  A series of sources, electrons, protons, neutrons, 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.
