Wave Interference

Interference pattern

When two sources produce waves at the same time, interference patterns can be formed. Set the condition for an interference pattern to be established in a wave tank.

Waves laboratory

Make waves with a dripping faucet, speakers, or a laser! Add a second source to create an interference pattern. Set up a barrier to explore single-slit diffraction and double-slit interference. Experiment with diffraction through elliptical, rectangular, or irregular slits.
