Would appreciate anyhelp to solving any of these questions ty.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1 A diffraction grating of pitch 3 .27mm is illuminated at normal incidence with

light comprised of various wavelengths. If components of wavelength

495nm, 625nm and 990nm are present find:-

a) the angular positions of the first order maxima for these 3 wavelengths,

b) the angular positions of the second order maxima ( for all 3 ),and

c) the number of possible orders for each wavelength.

2 A diffraction grating has 600 lines per mm. If white light contains visible

wavelengths in the range 400nm to 700 nm, calculate the total angular

dispersion of the visible spectrum in 1st and 2nd order.

3 A transmission grating of pitch 1.75mm is illuminated by a collimated beam

of red light of wavelength 625nm. The beam is incident at at angle of 30o

with respect to the normal. At what angles would you expect to see the

zeroth order and the two first order maxima. Find by trial and error the

number of orders possible both sides of the zeroth order.
