Creator: Ho, Seng-Tiong
Liu, Boyang
Publisher: Nanotechnology Center for Learning and Teaching
Description: Boyang Liu and Professor Seng-Tiong Ho of Northwestern University submitted this light wave simulation to illustrate the properties of light interference and diffraction to Physics students. The Single Slit Simulation and the Double Slit Simulation are 2-D visualizations that allow the user to control wavelength, aperture size, and the speed in order to compare the distinctive effects that specific conditions have on light. The simulation was created using the Finite Difference Time Domain, an electromagnetic modeling technique. This simulation is appropriate for high-school or college level courses and it is a great resource for educators looking to give students an intuitive grasp on diffraction and interference.
