DESTRUCTIVE INTERFERENCE

• 5

When two waves arrive at a point where path

differences from the sources differ by one

wavelength, two wavelengths, three wavelengths,

etc. there will be constructive interference.

Or mathematically:

�� − �� = �� ℎ��� � = 0,±1,±2,±3,….

• 6

When two waves arrive at a point where path

differences from the sources differ by � � ��������ℎ, �� ��������ℎ, �� ��������ℎ, ���. (Or half integer number of wavelengths) there will

be destructive interference.

Or mathematically:

�� − �� = �� + ��! �

Where ℎ��� � = 0,±1,±2,±3,….

Many ways to produce two rays of coherent light.

• 8

Consider path differences

"��ℎ #\$%%������ = # &\$�'

• 9

Constructive Interference

# &\$�' = �� ℎ��� � = 0,±1,±2,±3,….

Destructive Interference

# &\$�' = �� + ��! �

ℎ��� � = 0,±1,±2,±3,….

• 10

We can obtain the distance ( a bright line is below (or above) the center of the screen.

Use

If ) ≫ #

tan ' ≈ ()

Therefore

( = ) tan '

And for the �/0 bright line (1 ≈ ) tan '1

For small angles

tan ' ≈ sin '

Therefore

(1 ≈ ) sin '1

• 12

Use this with

# &\$�' = ��

Or

&\$�'1 = ��#

To get

(1 ≈ )��#

ℎ��� � = 0,±1,±2,±3,…

This is the equation that Young used to measure

the wave length of light.

• 13

As was said many ways of producing two rays of

coherent light. We have been discussing

• 14

Can also get two coherent rays from thin films.

• 15

• 16

We will discuss the interference between rays

coming from the two surfaces on opposite sides of

a space filled with liquid (thin film) or air.

First: we need to know that when light reflects

from a surface sometimes it undergoes a phase

shift of 180 0 .

For example if a ray is in air 4� = 1.005and reflects at the surface with water 4� = 1.335back into the air it does not undergo a phase shift.

But if a ray is in glass 4� = 1.335and reflects at the surface with air 4� = 1.005 back into the glass it undergoes a 180

0 phase shift.

• 17

Rule

If ray goes from low n material and reflects at

surface of high n material no phase shift.

If ray goes from high n material and reflects at

surface with low n material 180 degree phase

shift.

No phase shift.

180 0

(half wavelength) phase shift

• 18

Now consider we have a film as shown

Assume perpendicular.

Film thickness where shown �.

• 19

No phase shift at either surface or phase shift at

both surfaces

Constructive interference if

2� = �� � = 0, 1, 2, 3, …

But if one surface has phase shift and other does

not

Destructive interference.

Or

No phase shift at either surface or phase shift at

both surfaces

Destructive interference if

2� = �� + ��! � � = 0, 1, 2, 3, …

• 20

Example 26.3

Find separation of interference fringes.

One reflection (top) – no phase shift other

(bottom) – phase shift.

Glass

Air

• 21

Equation for destructive interference

2� = �� � = 0, 1, 2, 3, …

Where glass touches – destructive interference.

From figure

� D =

So

� = Dℎ�

Therefore

2 EDℎ� F = ��

D = � E �2ℎF � = � �� 2ℎ

DIFFRACTION

Light goes in straight line.

Therefore would expect sharp shadow of object on

a screen.

But

• 27

Consider light going through single slit.

This shows a ray from the top of the slit and one

from half way down the slit (middle).

Or looking only at the slit

• 28

The difference in path distance to the screen is

"��ℎ M\$%%. = �2 sin '

If the path difference is one half wave length –

destructive interference.

Therefore the requirement for a dark fringe is

� 2 sin ' = ±

� 2

sin ' = ± ��

• 29

If you divide the slit into 4 regions

If the path difference is one half wave length –

destructive interference.

Therefore the requirement for a dark fringe is

� 4 sin ' = ±

� 2

sin ' = ±2 ��

Becomes a/4

Becomes O/Q sinθ

• 30

Divide the slit into more sections and can show

The requirements for dark fringes are

sin ' = � �� 4� = ±1,±2,±3,… 5

• 31

If the wavelength of light is much smaller than the

slit width (and normally it is) then

��� ≪ 1 4���( &����5

Therefore

' ≪ 1 4���( &����5

And

sin ' ≈ '

Therefore for dark fringes

' ≈ ��� 4� = ±1,±2,±3,… 5

• 32

Also for

Use for distance to screen ) = D

Then tan ' = ST

And for the � �ℎ dark band

tan '1 = (1)

• 33

If the screen is a distance from the slit such that

) ≫ (1

And it normally is

Then ' ≪ 1 4���( &����5

And tan '1 ≈ '1

Therefore

'1 ≈ (1)

• 34

Then using

' ≈ ��� 4� = ±1,±2,±3,… 5

'1 ≈ (1) ≈ �� � 4� = ±1,±2,±3,… 5

Solve for (1

(1 ≈ )��� 4� = ±1, ± 3, ± 5,… 5

This is equation 26.10 in the book.

• 35

Multiple Slits

Path difference will be # sin '

• 36

Constructive interference occurs for

# sin ' = �� 4� = 0, ±1,±2,±3,… . 5

More complicated than two slit diffraction

• 37

Eight Slit

• 38

More – 16 slits

• 39

DIFFRACTION GRATINGS

Prisms refract light different amounts depending

on the wavelength of the light.

Note short wavelengths (blue) are refracted more

than he long wavelengths (red).

• 40

Diffraction Gratings will do much the same.

• 41

The equation for the maxima is the same as for

multiple slits.

# sin ' = �� 4� = 0, ±1,±2,±3,… . 5

Note

sin ' = ��#

Thus long wavelengths diffracted more than short

wavelengths. (Opposite to prisim.)

X-RAY DIFFRACTION

First experiments in 1912.

planes for diffraction.
