My query is this: From the following two methods, which is correct method to find error/uncertainty in DOP? If you know the individual errors for each p and q, then I would use (b) and propagate the errors since the relationship is not linear. Be careful with averages though. It might be better to use the median, for example, if you have one or two ...


I tried to do an experiment to answer this question using a real double slit setup. As expected I got no double-slit interference when I put the orthogonal polarizers in place. However, I did get single slit interference. This would be entirely compatible with the classical Fresnel-Arago laws because no interference between the orthogonal beams occurred but ...
