The banner photo at the top of the page shows a crude single slit diffraction pattern I produced on a wall by sending light from a laser pointer through a very narrow slit about 18 feet away from the wall. It was interesting to find a very similar picture illustrating a nice discussion of diffraction and interference in Marianne Breinig's on-line physics course at the University of Tennessee.
