A) what relationship exists between the two wavelengths B. Do any other minima in the two pattern coincide SOLUTION: a sinө =mλ sin ө =mλ/a sin өa1 = sin өb2 1λa/a = 2λb/a λa = 2λb maλa/a = mbλb/a mb =2ma When ever mb is an integer ma is an even integer. i.e. All of the diffraction minima of λa are overlapped by a minima of λb Problem no 4 A plane wave, with wavelength 593nm falls on a slit of width 420 µm. A thin converging lens having a focal length of 71.4 cm is placed behind the slit and focuses the light on a screen Find the distance on the screen from the center of the pattern to the second minimum Solution: sinө = mλ/a = y/D y = 2.02 mm Problem no 5 In a single slit diffraction pattern the distance between the 1st minimum on the right and the 1st minimum on the left is 5.2 mm. The screen on which the pattern is displayed is 82.3 cm from the slit and the wavelength is 546 nm calculate the slit width. sinө =mλ/a =y/D a = 173 micro meters Zone plate problems A zone plate is constructed in such a way that the radii of the circles which define the zones are the same as the radii of Newton’s rings formed between a plane surface and surface having radius o curvature of 2.0 m. a) Find the primary focal length of the zone plate and b) secondary focii Soln; A. rm2 = mRλ for Newton rings For m=1, r12 = λR fm = rm2 / mλ For m=1, f1 =r12 / λ = λR/λ = R =1m B. Secondary focii; put r22 and m=2m-1 then we get R=2R/3= 0.66R m Zone plate contd…. A point source of wavelength 5000A is placed 5.0 m away from the zone plate where central zone has the diameter 2.3 mm. Find the position of the primary image. Soln: 1/f = i/u +i/v = mλ/r m2 For the central zone, m=1, rm = 1.15mm U=500cm, λ=5x10 -5 cm Hence v=561.5 cm away from the zone plate 6. The distance between the first and the fifth minima of a single slit diffraction pattern is 0.350mm With the screen 41.3 cm away from the slit, using light of wavelength 546 nm A. calculate the diffraction angle of the first min B. find the width of the slit Solution: a) a sinө =mλ ө =sin - λ/a =(546x10 -9m)/2.58x10 =2.12x10 -4rad =1.21x10 -2 degree b) y/D = (m) λ/a a = (m) λD/y =(5-1) (0.413) (546x10 - 9)/(0.35x10 -3) =2.58 mm -3 m Problem no 7 If you double the width of a single slit, the intensity of the central maximum of the diffraction pattern increases by a factor of 4 times even through the energy passing through it only doubles. Explain qualitatively Soln: Doubling the width results in narrowing of the diffraction pattern As the width of the central maximum is effectively cut in half, then there is twice the energy in half the space, producing four times the intensity Problem no 8 Calculate approximately the relative intensities of the maxima in the single slit ,Fraunhofer Diffraction pattern Soln: The maxima lie app half way between the minima and are roughly given by = (m=½) where m=1,2,3….. Iө = Im {sin (m=½)/ (m=½)}2 Iө / Im = {1/ (m=½)}2 =0.0450 for m=1, =0.0162 =0.0083 =0.0050 =0.0033 for m=2, for m=3, for m=4, for m=5 Problem no 9 In a double slit experiment the distance D of the screen from the slits is 52cm the wavelength is 480nm, the slit separation is 0.12mm and the slit width is 0.025mm A.what is the spacing between adjacent fringes B.what is the distance from the cenetral maximum to the first minimum of the fringe envelope Soln: y = λD/d =(480x10 -9) (52x10 -2)/(0.12x10-3) =2.1mm Angular separation of the first minimum is sinө =λ/a = 0.0192 Y = D tan ө = D sinө =(52x10 -2)(0.0192) = 10mm There are about 9 fringes in the central peak of of the diffraction envelope Problem no 10 What requirements must be met for the central maximum of the envelope of the double slit interference pattern to contain exactly 11 fringes? How many fringes lie between the first and the second minima of the envelope? Soln: The required condition will be met if the 6 th min of the interference factor (cos2β) coincide with the 1st minimum of the diffraction factor (sin/)2. The sixth minimum of the interference factor occur when d sinө = 11λ/2 or β = 11/2. The first minimum in the diffraction term occurs for dsinө = λ Or = and d/D = 11/2 or d=5.5 Problem no 11 A. Design a double slit system in which the 4th fringe not counting the central maximum is missing. B. what other fringes if any are also missing? Soln: A. d sinө =4λ gives the location of the 4th interference maximum. a sinө =λ, gives the location of the first diffraction minimum. If d = 4a, there will be no 4th interference maximum. B. d sinөmi = mmiλ gives the location of the mth interference maxima. d sinөmd = mmdλ gives the location of the m th diffraction minima D=4a hence if m i =4md there will be a missing maxima Problem no 12 The wall of large room is covered with acoustic tile in which small holes are drilled 5.2mm from the center to the center. How far can a person be from such a tile and still distinguish individual holes assuming ideal condition? Assume the diameter of the pupil of the observer’s eye to be 4.6mm and the wavelength to be 542nm . Sol: y/D = 1.22λ/a (here a=4.6mm and y=5.2mm) D = 36.2m Problem no 13 The two head lights of an approaching automobile are 1.42 m apart . At what A) angular separation and B) maximum distance will the eye resolve them? Assume a pupil diameter of 5 mm and a wavelength of 562 nm. Also assume that the diffraction effects alone limit the resolution. Solution: A. least angular separation required for the resolution is өR = sin -1(1.22λ/a) =1.37 x 10-4 rad өR =y/D =1.42/D=1.37x10 -4 rad. D=1.04X 104 Diffraction grating problems A certain grating has 104 slits with a spacing d=2100 nm. It is illuminated with a light of wavelength 589 nm . Find A) The angular positions of all principal maxima observed and B) the angular width of the largest order maximum. Soln: A. d sinө = mλ sinө = m (589 x 10 -9m)/(2100 x 10 -9m) For m = 1, ө1 = 16.3 For m = 2, ө2 = 34.1 For m = 3, ө3= 57.3 For m = 4, ө4= more than 90 degree hence 3.0 order is the highest B) for m=3, ө = λ / Nd cosө= 5.2 x 10-5 rad or 0.0030 degree Grating contd…… A diffraction grating has 104 ruling uniformly spaced over 25 mm. It is illuminated normally using a sodium lamp containing two wavelengths 589.0 and 589.59 nm. A. At what angle will the first order maximum occur for the first of these wavelengths? B. what is the angular separation between the first order maxima for these lines. Will this alter in other orders. A. ө = sin-1 mλ/d =13.6 degrees B. dө = mλ/ d cos ө =2.4 x 10-4 rads or 0.014 degrees. As the spectral separation increases with the order no. this value increases with the order no. A diffraction grating has 1.2 x 104 rulings uniformly spaced over a width w= 2.5 cm and is illuminated normally using sodium light containing two wavelengths 589 and 589.59nm. A. at what angle does the first order maximum occur for the first of these wavelengths B. what is the angular separation between these two lines in the first and the second orders C. how close in wavelength can two lines be in the first order and өλ still be resolved by this grating D. how many rulings can a grating have and just resolve the sodium doublet lines. soln: A. ө = sin-1 (mλ/d) = 16.4 degrees B. Dispersion D = ө/λ = m /(d cosө ) =5.0 x 10-4 rad/nm ө = D x λ =2.95 x 10-4 rads or 0.0169 degrees C. Resolving power = Nm = 1.2 x 10 4 λ =λ/R =0.049 nm hence can resolve the D lines. D. R =λ/λ = 998. Hence no. of rulings needed is N=R/m =998/1=998 hence can easily resolve as it has 12 times no, of rulings in it. Grating contd…… A grating has 200 ruling/mm and principal maximum is noted at 28 degrees. What are the possible wavelengths of the incident visible light Soln: λ = (d sinө)/m = 2367 nm for m=1. On trying for m =4 &5 we get in the visible range as 589nm and 469 nm and for m=6 and above it will be in the uv range. Grating contd…… For a grating the no. of rulings is 350/mm. A white light falling normally on it produces spectrum 30 cm from it. If a 10 mm square hole is cut in the screen with its inner edge 50mm from the central maximum and parallel to it, what range of wavelengths passes through the hole? Soln: Shortest wavelength passes through at an angle of ө1 = tan -1 (50mm/300mm)= 9.46 degree λ 1 ={ (1 x 10 -3)sin 9.46} /350 = 470 nm The longest wavelength that can pass through an angle ө2 = tan-1(60mm/300mm) = 11.3 degree This corresponds to a wavelength Λ 2 = {(1x10 -3 )sin11.3} / 350 = 560 nm Grating contd…… A source containing a mixture of hydrogen and deuterium atoms emit light containing two closely spaced red colors at 656.3 nm whose separation is 0.180 nm.
