Hey guys so ive been revising and making notes for AS physics (AQA New Spec) and I was reading the specification I got pretty confused with Interference & diffraction and was wondering if anyone help explain it to me
The main stuff (from the spec) that I need to know
- Interference and diffraction using a laser as a source of monochromatic light.
- Young’s double-slit experiment: the use of two coherent sources or the use of a single source with double slits toproduce an interference pattern.
- Production of interference pattern using white light.
- Appearance of the diffraction pattern from a single slit using monochromatic and white light.
The main confusion is what is the difference between interference and diffraction? The last two bullet points seem almost identical
Diffraction and Interference help watch
