Description:

This item is an interactive Java simulation relating to wave/particle duality in the behavior of light. The tutorial explores how both photons and waves behave when diffracted by an opaque surface. Users can observe that particles pass by a barrier undeviated, whereas light waves diffract (or bend) around it. This item is part of a larger collection of materials on optics and microscopy developed by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory and Florida State University.
