Chem. 540 Instructor: Nancy Makri PROBLEM 5 Perhaps surprisingly, large interference effects can occur even when one of the interfering possibil- ities is not very probable. Consider a two-slit experiment where one hole is sufficiently blocked so that the probability of getting through is reduced by a factor of 100. Show that the probability of

Unformatted text preview: finidng the electron at a maximum in the now reduced interference pattern is still 50% higher than at a minimum. (Consider a maximum and a minimum near the center of the screen, i.e., take a value of x equidistant from the two holes.) Use Dirac notation. Hint: Take x approximately equidistant from the two holes, so |<x|1>|=|<x|2>|....
