My research, which is mainly related to communication, involves the use of optical sources (mainly lasers). However, my background in photonics and optics is not yet solid, so my question might be a ...
What if I take a laser pen and direct it towards the middle of two wide slits? Will I get interference pattern or just two lines? Do I need to scatter photons before they hit the slits to observe ...
I have two laser beams with same polarization running parallel to each other. Will they interfere? If yes, then what are the conditions (perpendicular distance etc) and how can I observe the ...
Could anyone please explain with simply how we can measure the rotation speed of an object using the Sagnac Interferometer ?
I want to arrange some red lasers along a 90 degree arc of a circle, aimed towards the center of the circle. When their beams hit the opposite side of the circle, will I notice any interference ...
Recently I've had several non-physicist friends ask me, independently of each other, about an experiment where two collinear laser beams destructively interfere along a certain length. Everybody wants ...
