Unformatted text preview: Diffraction grating : There are different kinds of diffraction grating, with many applications in spectroscopy. We consider here one type of grating, which is a set of N 1 slits or rulings, each of width b , at distance a from one another, so that the total width of the grating d = ( N 1) a Na . We have already found the result for the case N = 2. We can treat the diffraction grating as a collection of pairs of slits. For each pair we can take the solution we have found, and only superpose the waves from such pairs. We give each pair an index j [1 , N 2 ]: P E L r e i ( kr t ) N 2 j =1 (2 j 1) a b 2 (2 j 1) a + b 2 e iks sin ds + (2 j 1) a + b 2 (2 j 1) a b 2 e iks sin ds E L r e i ( kr t ) N 2 j =1 F j 82 F j = 1 ik sin e iks sin  (2 j 1) a b 2 (2 j 1) a + b 2 + e iks sin (2 j 1) a + b 2 (2 j 1) a b 2 = 1 ik sin e ik sin (2 j 1) a b 2 e ik sin (2 j 1) a + b 2 + e ik sin (2 j 1) a b 2 e ik sin (2 j 1) a + b...
