Theory Interference is a wave phenomenon. The slit can be seen as a small area. Each area of the original source emits light independently of the other areas, thus limiting effect is what improves the coherence. Procedure Place the filsm so that a pair of slits gives an intense pattern on the screen. Measure the distance between the centers of two of the bright fringes on the screen that are far apart from one another. Calculate distance s, L, d, and count the number of fringes (n).

Unformatted text preview: Data and Calculations Error Analysis The lab called for counting of very small fringes. As such, human error was very prevalent in this lab. Initially, the lab was not done in vacuum where the properties of light follow expected patterns. Even so, our lab was fairly consistent with the expected range of wavelength. Conclusion We were successful in obtaining the predicted value, thus signifying the presence of light interference....
