Recall Interference (at least 2 coherent waves) Constructive (full wavelength difference) Destructive (half wavelength difference) Light (1 source, but different paths) last lecture Thin Films Double slit today Multiple slit x-ray diffraction from crystal Diffraction/single slit 5
Background image of page 2
But first: Thin Film Practice n glass = 1.5 n water = 1.3 n = 1.0 (air) t 1 2 δ 1 = ½ δ 2 = 0 + 2t / λ glass = 2t n glass / λ 0 = (2)(167)(1.5)/500) =1 Blue light ( λ ο = 500 nm ) incident on a glass ( n glass = 1.5 ) cover slip ( t = 167 nm ) floating on top of water ( n water = 1.3 ). Is the interference constructive or destructive or neither ? Phase shift = δ 2 δ 1 = ½ wavelength 45 Reflection at air-film interface only

d Path length difference 1-2 Multiple Slits: (Diffraction Grating – N slits with spacing d) θ θ L = d sin θ 13    dsin θ = m λ Constructive interference for all paths when d Path length difference 1-3 = 2d sin θ d 3 Path length difference 1-4 = 3d sin θ = λ = 2 λ = 3 λ 4 1 2

N slits with spacing d Constructive Interference Maxima are at:    sin θ = m λ d * screen VERY far away θ Diffraction Grating Same as for Young’s Double Slit !
