Interference Treating light as a particle (geometrical optics) helped us to understand how images are formed by lenses and mirrors by constructing ray diagrams. But we can understand different phenomena by treating light as a wave. For example, light waves will interfere with each other just like the sound waves and waves on a string that we dealt with earlier. This means we can get areas of constructive interference and destructive interference just like we had when we produced standing waves.

Interference In order to create sustained interference, you need two sources with identical wavelengths ( monochromatic ) that are coherent .

Interference Coherence means that the waves must maintain a constant phase with respect to each other. (Demo)

Double Slit Experiment Two narrow slits, S 1 and S 2 , can act as sources of waves. The waves emerging from the slits originate from the same wavefront and therefore are always in phase (coherence).
