MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY 2.710 Optics Spring ’09 Problem Set #5 Posted Monday, March 30, 2009 — Due Wednesday, April 8, 2009 1. Two plane waves of the same wavelength λ are propagating along the directions of wave vectors k 1 , k 2 as shown in the figure below. 1.a) Describe the interference pattern that would be observed on the plane xy . 1.b) Describe the interference pattern that would be observed on a plane parallel to xy but one wavelength λ away towards the positive z direction. 1.c) Describe the interference pattern that would be observed on the plane yz . o y x z k k 30 1 2 45 o o 30 Figure A 2. A plane wave and a spherical wave, both of the same wavelength, are co-propagating as shown in figure B on the next page. 2.a) Describe the interference pattern that would be observed on a plane per- pendicular to the z axis at a distance of 1000 λ away from the origin of the spherical wave. 2.b) Repeat for the plane located 2000 λ away from the origin of the spherical wave.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
