Main Document

Multiple Slit Diffraction JS Model 

written by Wolfgang Christian

The EJS JavaScript Multiple Slit Diffraction model allows the user to visualize Fraunhofer diffraction through single or multiple slits. The user can modify the number of slits N, the slit width D, the slit separation d, and the wavelength λ
of the incident light. (All units are in micro meters.) The scale of the diffraction pattern can also be changed by adjusting the distance L from the slits to the screen and the
light intensity curve can be toggled on and off with the envelope checkbox.
