Announcements 11/9/12
  • Prayer
  • Clement sick today, no office hours
  • Lab 8 going on, due on Sat Nov 17
  • Lab 9 starts tomorrow, due on Sat Nov 17
  • Lab 10 starts tomorrow, due on Tues Nov 20
  • Exam 3 starts day after break
  • Two facts you should know: (They follow quickly from eix = cosx + i sinx) From warmup Extra time on? (nothing in particular) Other comments? (nothing in particular) Double slit diffraction Two slit interference From Wikipedia From warmup What is the purpose of S1 in the right figure? Some good thoughts: To make sure that the light sources at b and c are identical Is it to make sure that the point source of light is centered exactly between b and c and to make sure that b and c are coherent? That is the original ray. The two slits b and c split it up like a speaker splits up a single sound wave. Reminder: How did we do it with sound? An alternate method: Use a laser, then S1 not needed intensity screen here Double slit experiment aka “Young’s Double Slit”
  • Essentially the same as the two speaker demo
  • Goal: what’s the shape of that curve? How can we predict where the maxima & minima will be?
  • min max min max Wait, which is correct? The Easy Part
  • Maxima/minima
  • Approximation #1: d is small enough that the two rays are parallel. Requires d << L. Maxima: DPL = ? Minima: DPL = ? From warmup Consider a two-slit interference pattern like those above. What do you suppose would happen if the entire setup were immersed in water? The bars would move together and get smaller because the wavelength decreases when you immerse it in water, therefore the distance between the bars is decreased. How to solve the problem
  • Complex numbers!!
  • The light from each slit travels a different distance
  • This creates a phase shift
  • Incorporate the phase shift into eif factors
  • First: what’s the phase shift for two waves oscillating in phase with a known DPL?
  • Quick writing (w/o Approx. 1) 3.2 m two sources of sound, l=1.2m (in phase) what is relative phase shift, here? 3.0 m f = ( DPL / l )  360 f = 2pDPL / l How to add? Intensity? What’s DPL?
  • Clicker Vote: What should we measure the phase shift relative to?
  • The top slit
  • The bottom slit
  • Halfway between the two slits
  • f = 2pDPL / l The Full Answer f = 2pDPL / l
  • Etot = Etop slit + Ebottom slit = [use whiteboard]
  • I ~ |E|2 I = [use whiteboard]
  • Plot of I(y) for I0=1, l=500 nm, L=1 m, d=1mm
  • How did I turn q into y?
  • Approximation #2: sometimes (not here!) q is small enough that q  y/L. Requires y << L.
  • Plots (approx. 1 and 2) (approx. 1 only) intensity screen here min max min max max min max min max min max screen here Maxima/minima, revisited
  • Max: cosx = 1  …
  • Min: cosx = 0  …
  • What you need to know Not given on exam Given on exam
  • HW 32-4: Solve the three slit problem
  • Exam problem likely (possibly extra credit)
  • Disclaimer: This only works for very narrow slits  Lecture after next: “wide” slits
  • Demo: Double slit experiment!
