Suppose an observer is moving at some constant velocity(<< c) and observing the young's double slit experiment. What changes will it observe compared to an observer at rest? This is what i could make out :(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1) The wavelength of incoming light will change (doppler effect)

2) By the intuition that interference pattern will be the same, the moving slit somehow cancels the doppler effect, hence same pattern for the both the observers.

also how will things change if its an electron beam.
