I did the single slit light diffraction lab. The diode laser we used was 630-680 nm. It produced an image very much like the one on this page:
How does having multiple wavelengths in the laser change the pattern produced? What would it look like if the laser only produced one wavelength?
Before I turn my lab in, I want to make sure I have the right answer...
y = (mLD / a)
I think the size of the minima (dots) would be smaller, and possibly the spacing between them will be closer together. Can someone clarify?
