Rearranging the doulbe slit experiement?

  1. Jun 18, 2010 #1

    I would like to know if it is possible to rearrange the components of the double slit experiment so that the particle detectors are placed behind the detection screen? The screen would have to have holes to allow the particles to pass to the detectors when they are activated. Those holes would have to be positioned so the fringe lines do not hit them when the detectors are inactive. So all of the angles and positions would have to be precise. Since its difficult to explain I made a video.
