Wave Particle Duality of Light
As we have seen, electromagnetic radiation has two aspects, a wave aspect and a particle aspect. Interference and diffraction of e.m. radiation are explaine
Dual - Nature of Light
It is now recognised that light has a dual-nature. Light can be considered as a particle or a wave - we never need to use both to describe an effect - only one, as each is mutually incompatible.
We will discuss this in more detail l

Superposition When two waves meet the resultant wave is just the sum of the two separate waves y(x,t) =y1(x,t) + y2 (x,t) The waves do not effect each other as long as the amplitudes of the waves are not too large. Fourier Analys
