From last time: what did our twoslit analysis have to do with Fourier transforms? ( 29 1 i E stuff e φ = × + ~ each slit i E e φ → ∑ ~ i open areas E e dY φ → ∫ ~ " " i E aperture function e dY φ ∞∞ × ∫ (this is the ycoordinate on the slits, not the ycoordinate on the screen) 2 2 2 2 ( )cos L n L nx a f x dx L L π = ÷ ∫ compare to: Adding up phases … ( 29 rel.to ref. slit1 slit 2 final slit ... i i i i tot E E e e e e φ φ φ φ = + + + For an equallyspaced pattern of slits, how do the ∆ PLs compare? Each φ is a multiple of φ 1 ! (Could have an overall reference phase…not too important.) slits screen 2 foreachslit PL φ π λ ∆ = ÷ In short, we need to add up a bunch of vectors that have the same magnitude (1), but angles (phases) that go like 0 ° , 20 ° , 40 ° , 60 ° , etc., etc....
