Diffraction

Postby Izzie Capra 2E » Sun Oct 13, 2019 12:42 pm

In lecture we discussed how IN GENERAL, light (waves) show different diffraction patterns. What would be an an example of a light (wave) that doesn't have these patterns or properties?

Under certain conditions, light will also act as a particle with photons. This was seen in the photoelectric effect when the light particles were able to remove electrons from the metal surface. Prior to that experiment by Einstein, it was largely believed that light was only a wave. Hope this helps!
