Unit 1. Wave Optics
wave optics, is the branch of optics that studies interference,
diffraction, polarization, and other phenomena for which the ray
approximation of geometric optics is not valid.
What is Light?
Light is an electromagnetic radiation refers to visible regions of
electromagnetic spectrum corresponding to the wavelength range of
380nm to 750nm which has transverse vibrations.
Basic Definitions
The Wavelength of a sin
wave, λ, can be measured
between any two points with
the same phase, such as
between crests, or troughs, as
shown.
The frequency, f, of a wave is
the number of waves passing a
point in a certain time. We
normally use a time of one
second, so this gives
frequency the unit hertz (Hz),
since one hertz is equal to one
wave per second.
Interference of Light, Diffraction of Light
Principle of Superposition
“Whenever two or more waves superimpose in a medium, the
total displacement at any point is equal to the vector sum of
individual displacement of waves at that point”
If Y1
, Y2
, Y3
…are different
displacement vector due to the
waves 1,2,3 …acting
separately then according to
the principle of superposition
the resultant displacement is
given by
Y=Y1
+Y2
+Y3
+……
INTERFERENCE is the process in which two or more waves
of the same frequency - be it light, sound, or other electromagnetic waves -
either reinforce or cancel each other, the amplitude of the resulting wave being
equal to the sum of the amplitudes of the combining waves.

MICHELSON’S INTERFERROMETER
The Michelson interferometer is a common
configuration for optical interferometer and was
invented by Albert Abraham Michelson in 1887.
Using a beam splitter, a light source is split into two
arms.
Principle:- The MI works on the principle of division of amplitude.
When the incident beam of light falls on a beam splitter which divided
light wave in two part in different directions. These two light beams
after traveling different optical paths, are superimposed to each other
and due to superposition interferences fringes formed.
Construction:- It consists of two highly polished plane mirror M1
and M2
, with
two optically plane glass plate G1
and G2
which are of same material and same
thickness. The mirror M1
and M2
are adjusted in such a way that they are
mutually perpendicular to each other. The plate G1
and G2
are exactly parallel to
each other and placed at 45° to mirror M1
and M2
. Plate G1
is half silvered from
its back while G2
is plane and act as compensating plate. Plate G1
is known as
beam-splitter plate.
The mirror M2
with screw on its back can slightly titled about vertical and
horizontal direction to make it exactly perpendicular to mirror M1
. The mirror M1
can be moved forward or backward with the help of micrometer screw and this
movement can be measured very accurately.
Working: Light from a broad source is made paralied by using a convex lens L.
Light from lens L is made to fall on glass plate G1
which is half silver polished
from its back. This plate divides the incident beam into two light rays by the
partial reflection and partial transmission, known as Beam splitter plate. The
reflected ray travels towards mirror M1
and transmitted ray towards mirror M2
.
These rays after reflection from their respective mirrors meet again at 'O' and
superpose to each other to produce interference fringes. This firings pattern is
observed by using telescope.
Functioning of Compensating Plate: In absence of plate G2
the reflected ray passes
the plate G1
twice, whereas the transmitted ray does not passes even once.
Therefore, the optical paths of the two rays are not equal. To equalize this path the
plate G2
which is exactly same as the plate G1
is introduced in path of the ray
proceeding towards mirror M2
that is why this plate is called compensating plate
because it compensate the additional path difference.
Formation of fringes in MI
Interference of Light, Diffraction of Light
Interference of Light, Diffraction of Light
The shape of fringes in MI depends on inclination of mirror M1
and M2
. Circular fringes are
produced with monochromatic light, if the mirror M1
and M2
are perfectly perpendicular to
each other. The virtual image of mirror M2
and the mirror M1
must be parallel. Therefore it is
assumed that an imaginary air film is formed in between mirror M1
and virtual image mirror
M'2
. Therefore, the interference pattern will be obtained due to imaginary air film enclosed
between M1
andM'2
.
From Fig. if the distance M1
and M2
and M'2
is'd', the
distance between S'1
and S'2
will be 2D.
If the light ray coming from two virtual sources
making an angle θ with the normal then the path
difference between the two beams from S1
and S2
will becomes
As one of the ray is reflecting from denser medium
mirror M1, a path change of λ/2 occurs in it. Hence
the effective path difference between them will be
If this path difference is equal to an integral number of wavelength λ, the condition for
constructive interference is satisfied. Thus the bright fringe will formed.
If this path difference is equal to an integral number of wavelength (2n±1)λ/2, the condition
for destructive interference is satisfied. Thus the dark fringe will formed.
Radius of Fringes
The Condition for maxima and minima in MI is given by
It is clear that on moving away from center the value of angle θ increases and the value of
cos θ decreases hence the order of fringe also decrease so n maximum at center, The
condition for nth dark ring at center is
On moving m number of rings away from the center, the
order of mth
ring will be ( n-m). If mth
ring make an angle

Applications of MI
(1) Measurement of the wavelength of monochromatic light : The mirror M1
and
M2
adjusted such that circular fringes are formed. For this purpose mirror M1 and
M2 are made exactly perpendicular to each other.
Now set the telescope at the center of fringe and move the mirror M1 in any
direction, number of fringes shifted in field of view of telescope is counted.
Let on moving mirror M1 through x distance number of fringes shifted is N So the
path difference
By using both equations we will calculate wavelength corresponding to distance
and number of fringes shifted through telescope.
(2) Determination of the difference in between two nearby wavelengths :- Suppose
a source has two nearby wavelengths λ1 and λ2. Each wavelength gives rise its own
fringe pattern in MI. By adjusting the position of the mirror M1, aposition will be
found where fringes from both wavelength will coincide and form highly contrast
fringes.
So the condition is given by
When a mirror M1
has been moved through a certain distance, the bright fringe due to
wavelength λ1
coincide with dark fringe due to wavelength λ2
and no fringe will be seen.
On further movies mirror M1
the bright fringes again distinct, this is the position where
n1

+m+1.

NEWTONS RING
                                                                 
Newton's rings seen in two plano-convex lenses with their flat surfaces in contact. One surface is
slightly convex, creating the rings. In white light, the rings are rainbow-colored, because the
different wavelengths of each color interfere at different locations.
Newton's rings is a phenomenon
in which an interference pattern is
created by the reflection of light
between two surfaces—a spherical
surface and an adjacent touching
flat surface. It is named for Isaac
Newton, who first studied the effect
in 1717. When viewed with
monochromatic light, Newton's
rings appear as a series of
concentric, alternating bright and
dark rings centered at the point of
contact between the two surfaces.
1. Construction
2. Theory
Theory Explanation
When a Plano convex lens of long focal length is placed in contact on a plane glass
plate (Figure given below), a thin air film is enclosed between the upper surface of
the glass plate and the lower surface of the lens. The thickness of the air film is
almost zero at the point of contact O and gradually increases as one proceeds
towards the periphery of the lens. Thus points where the thickness of air film is
constant, will lie on a circle with O as center.
By means of a sheet of glass G, a parallel beam of monochromatic light is
reflected towards the lens L. Consider a ray of monochromatic light that strikes the
upper surface of the air film nearly along normal. The ray is partly reflected and
partly refracted as shown in the figure. The ray refracted in the air film is also
reflected partly at the lower surface of the film. The two reflected rays, i.e. produced
at the upper and lower surface of the film, are coherent and interfere constructively
or destructively. When the light reflected upwards is observed through microscope
M which is focused on the glass plate, series of dark and bright rings are seen with
center as O. These concentric rings are known as " Newton's Rings ".
At the point of contact of the lens and the glass plate, the thickness of the film is
effectively zero but due to reflection at the lower surface of air film from denser
medium, an additional path of λ/2 is introduced. Consequently, the center of Newton
rings is dark due to destructive interference.

Diffraction of Light
Diffraction refers to various phenomena that occur when a wave
encounters an obstacle or a slit. It is defined as the bending of light
around the corners of an obstacle or aperture into the region of
geometrical shadow of the obstacle.

Classification of Diffraction
Diffraction phenomena of light can be divided into two different classes
Fraunhofer Diffraction at a Single Slit
Let us consider a slit be rectangular aperture
whose length is large as compared to its
breath. Let a parallel beam of wavelength be
incident normally upon a narrow slit of AB.
And each point of AB send out secondary
wavelets is all direction. The rays proceeding
in the same direction as the incident rays are
focused at point O and which are diffracted at
angle θ are focused at point B. The width of
slit AB is small a.
The path difference between AP and BP is
calculated by draw a perpendicular BK.
According to figure the path difference

According to Huygens wave theory each point of slit AB spread out secondary wavelets which
interfere and gives diffraction phenomena. Let n be the secondary wavelets of the wave front
incident on slit AB . The resultant amplitude due to all equal parts of slit AB at the point P can
be determine by the method of vector addition of amplitude. This method is known as
polygon method
For this construct a polygon of vector that magnitude Ao

For the principal minima intensity should be zero
Where n = 1, 2, 3,4……
n = 0
Secondary Maxima
To find out direction of secondary maxima we
differentiate intensity equation with respect to
α and equivalent to zero
This is the condition for secondary
maximas and can be solved by plotting a
graph between y= tanα and y=α as shown

the position of secondary maxima. The

Diffraction Grating
A diffraction grating is an arrangement equivalent to a large number of parallel slits of
equal widths and separated from one another by equal opaque spaces.
Construction
Diffraction grating can be made by
drawing a large number of equidistant
and parallel lines on an optically plane
glass plate with the help of a sharp
diamond point. The rulings scatter the
light and are effectively opaque, while
the unruled parts transmit light and act
as slits. The experimental arrangement
of diffraction grating is shown
They are two type refection and
transmission gratings

Theory for transmission grating
(resultant intensity and amplitude)
Let AB be the section of a grating having
width of each slit as a, and b the width of each
opaque space between the slits. The quantity
(a + b) is called grating element, and two
consecutive slits separated by the distance (a
+ b) are called corresponding points.
The schematic ray diagram of grating has
been shown in figure
Let a parallel beam of light of wavelength λ incident normally on the grating using
the theory of single slit & Huygens principle, the amplitude of the wave diffracted at
angle θ by each slit is given by
……………………eq 1
Diffraction by n parallel slit at an angle θ is equivalent to N parallel waves of amplitude R
That emitted from each slit s1
, s2
, s3
…..sN
Where α = π/λ (a sinθ), These N parallel waves interfere
and gives diffraction pattern consisting of maxima and minima on the screen.
The path difference between the waves emitted from two consecutive slits given by.
The corresponding Phase Difference
Thus there are N equal waves of equal amplitude and with a increasing phase difference of δ
……………………eq 2
……………………eq 3
……………………eq 4
To find the resultant amplitude of these N parallel waves we use the vector polygon method.
Waves from each slit is represented by vectors where its magnitude represented by amplitude
and direction represents the phase.
Thus joining the N vectors tail to tip we get a polygon of N equal sides and the angle between
two consecutive sides is δ
The phase difference between waves from first to last slit is Nδ obtained by drawing the
tangents at A and B

The intensity will be minimum when I = 0 i.e. sinNβ = 0 but sinβ ≠ 0
Nβ = ±pπ here p = 1, 2, 3………..(N-1)(N+1)…….(2N-1)(2N+1)…….. i.e. p ≠ N, 2N……
hence

To find out direction of secondary maxima we differentiate intensity equation with respect to

If the angle of diffraction is such that, the minima due to diffraction component in the
intensity distribussion falls at the same position of principal maxima due to interference

Now we consider some cases

Resolving Power
Resolving Power
The ability of an optical instrument to produce two distinct separate images of two objects located very close to
each other is called the resolution power
Limit of resolution
The smallest distance between two object, when images
are seen just as separate is known as limit of resolution
For eye limit of resolution is 1 minutes
Resolution
When two objects or their images are very close to each other they appeared as a one and it not be possible for the
eye to seen them separate. Thus to see two close objects just as separate is called resolution

Interference of Light, Diffraction of Light

  • 1. Engineering Physics Lecture Series By Dr.Vishal Jain, Associate Professor Department of Physics Geetanjali Institute of Technical Studies Udaipur, Rajasthan Experience =10 Years, Research Publications =25 Unit 1. Wave Optics
  • 2. wave optics, is the branch of optics that studies interference, diffraction, polarization, and other phenomena for which the ray approximation of geometric optics is not valid.
  • 3. What is Light? Light is an electromagnetic radiation refers to visible regions of electromagnetic spectrum corresponding to the wavelength range of 380nm to 750nm which has transverse vibrations.
  • 4. Basic Definitions The Wavelength of a sin wave, λ, can be measured between any two points with the same phase, such as between crests, or troughs, as shown. The frequency, f, of a wave is the number of waves passing a point in a certain time. We normally use a time of one second, so this gives frequency the unit hertz (Hz), since one hertz is equal to one wave per second.
  • 6. Principle of Superposition “Whenever two or more waves superimpose in a medium, the total displacement at any point is equal to the vector sum of individual displacement of waves at that point” If Y1 , Y2 , Y3 …are different displacement vector due to the waves 1,2,3 …acting separately then according to the principle of superposition the resultant displacement is given by Y=Y1 +Y2 +Y3 +……
  • 7. INTERFERENCE is the process in which two or more waves of the same frequency - be it light, sound, or other electromagnetic waves - either reinforce or cancel each other, the amplitude of the resulting wave being equal to the sum of the amplitudes of the combining waves.
  • 9. MICHELSON’S INTERFERROMETER The Michelson interferometer is a common configuration for optical interferometer and was invented by Albert Abraham Michelson in 1887. Using a beam splitter, a light source is split into two arms.
  • 10. Principle:- The MI works on the principle of division of amplitude. When the incident beam of light falls on a beam splitter which divided light wave in two part in different directions. These two light beams after traveling different optical paths, are superimposed to each other and due to superposition interferences fringes formed.
  • 11. Construction:- It consists of two highly polished plane mirror M1 and M2 , with two optically plane glass plate G1 and G2 which are of same material and same thickness. The mirror M1 and M2 are adjusted in such a way that they are mutually perpendicular to each other. The plate G1 and G2 are exactly parallel to each other and placed at 45° to mirror M1 and M2 . Plate G1 is half silvered from its back while G2 is plane and act as compensating plate. Plate G1 is known as beam-splitter plate. The mirror M2 with screw on its back can slightly titled about vertical and horizontal direction to make it exactly perpendicular to mirror M1 . The mirror M1 can be moved forward or backward with the help of micrometer screw and this movement can be measured very accurately. Working: Light from a broad source is made paralied by using a convex lens L. Light from lens L is made to fall on glass plate G1 which is half silver polished from its back. This plate divides the incident beam into two light rays by the partial reflection and partial transmission, known as Beam splitter plate. The reflected ray travels towards mirror M1 and transmitted ray towards mirror M2 . These rays after reflection from their respective mirrors meet again at 'O' and superpose to each other to produce interference fringes. This firings pattern is observed by using telescope.
  • 12. Functioning of Compensating Plate: In absence of plate G2 the reflected ray passes the plate G1 twice, whereas the transmitted ray does not passes even once. Therefore, the optical paths of the two rays are not equal. To equalize this path the plate G2 which is exactly same as the plate G1 is introduced in path of the ray proceeding towards mirror M2 that is why this plate is called compensating plate because it compensate the additional path difference. Formation of fringes in MI
  • 15. The shape of fringes in MI depends on inclination of mirror M1 and M2 . Circular fringes are produced with monochromatic light, if the mirror M1 and M2 are perfectly perpendicular to each other. The virtual image of mirror M2 and the mirror M1 must be parallel. Therefore it is assumed that an imaginary air film is formed in between mirror M1 and virtual image mirror M'2 . Therefore, the interference pattern will be obtained due to imaginary air film enclosed between M1 andM'2 . From Fig. if the distance M1 and M2 and M'2 is'd', the distance between S'1 and S'2 will be 2D. If the light ray coming from two virtual sources making an angle θ with the normal then the path difference between the two beams from S1 and S2 will becomes As one of the ray is reflecting from denser medium mirror M1, a path change of λ/2 occurs in it. Hence the effective path difference between them will be
  • 16. If this path difference is equal to an integral number of wavelength λ, the condition for constructive interference is satisfied. Thus the bright fringe will formed. If this path difference is equal to an integral number of wavelength (2n±1)λ/2, the condition for destructive interference is satisfied. Thus the dark fringe will formed.
  • 17. Radius of Fringes The Condition for maxima and minima in MI is given by It is clear that on moving away from center the value of angle θ increases and the value of cos θ decreases hence the order of fringe also decrease so n maximum at center, The condition for nth dark ring at center is On moving m number of rings away from the center, the order of mth ring will be ( n-m). If mth ring make an angle θm with the axis of telescope then from equation For maxima For minima ……………Eq 1 ……………Eq 2 D θm rm n n-1 n-2 m n-m On Subtracting eq 1 and 2 …Eq 3 Here …Eq 4
  • 18. By eq 3 and 4 This equation gives the radius of mth ring ……………Eq 5 ……………Eq 6 ……………Eq 7 ……………Eq 8 ……………Eq 9 ……………Eq 10
  • 19. Applications of MI (1) Measurement of the wavelength of monochromatic light : The mirror M1 and M2 adjusted such that circular fringes are formed. For this purpose mirror M1 and M2 are made exactly perpendicular to each other. Now set the telescope at the center of fringe and move the mirror M1 in any direction, number of fringes shifted in field of view of telescope is counted. Let on moving mirror M1 through x distance number of fringes shifted is N So the path difference By using both equations we will calculate wavelength corresponding to distance and number of fringes shifted through telescope. (2) Determination of the difference in between two nearby wavelengths :- Suppose a source has two nearby wavelengths λ1 and λ2. Each wavelength gives rise its own fringe pattern in MI. By adjusting the position of the mirror M1, aposition will be found where fringes from both wavelength will coincide and form highly contrast fringes.
  • 20. So the condition is given by When a mirror M1 has been moved through a certain distance, the bright fringe due to wavelength λ1 coincide with dark fringe due to wavelength λ2 and no fringe will be seen. On further movies mirror M1 the bright fringes again distinct, this is the position where n1 +m order coincide with n2 +m+1. So the condition given by Subtracting eq 2 by eq 1 So by eq 4 and 3 ……………Eq 1 ……………Eq 2 ……………Eq 3 ……………Eq 4
  • 21. Problems & Solution Q.1. In MI 200 fringes cross the field of view when the movable mirror is displaced through 0.05896mm. Calculate the wavelength of the monochromatic light used. Solution:- Given N=200 x= 0.05896mm = 0.05896 X 10-3 m So the wavelength Å Q.2. The initial and final readings of MI screw are 10.7347 mm and 10.7057mm respectively, when 100 fringes pass trough the field of view. Calculate the wavelength of light used. Solution:- Given N=100 x=x2 -x1 = 10.7347-107057=0.029mm=0.029 X 10-3 m So the wavelength Å
  • 22. Problems & Solution Q.3. MI is set to form circular fringes with light of wavelength 5000Å. By Changing the path length of movable mirror slowly, 50 fringes cross the center of view How much path length has been changed? Solution:- Given N=50 λ= 5000 X 10-10 m So the path length Q.4. In a Michelson Interferometer, when 200 fringes are shifted, the final reading of the screw was found to be 5.3675mm. If the wavelength of light was 5.92 X 10-7 m, What was the critical reading of the screw? Solution:- Given N=200 x=x2 -x1 = 5.3675 X10-3 m - ? and wavelength λ = 5.92 X 10-2 m So the wavelength Now initial reading of screw d1 =d2 ± x = 5.3675 x 10-3 m + 0.0592 x10-3 m =5.4267 x 10-3 m
  • 23. NEWTONS RING                                                                   Newton's rings seen in two plano-convex lenses with their flat surfaces in contact. One surface is slightly convex, creating the rings. In white light, the rings are rainbow-colored, because the different wavelengths of each color interfere at different locations. Newton's rings is a phenomenon in which an interference pattern is created by the reflection of light between two surfaces—a spherical surface and an adjacent touching flat surface. It is named for Isaac Newton, who first studied the effect in 1717. When viewed with monochromatic light, Newton's rings appear as a series of concentric, alternating bright and dark rings centered at the point of contact between the two surfaces.
  • 26. Theory Explanation When a Plano convex lens of long focal length is placed in contact on a plane glass plate (Figure given below), a thin air film is enclosed between the upper surface of the glass plate and the lower surface of the lens. The thickness of the air film is almost zero at the point of contact O and gradually increases as one proceeds towards the periphery of the lens. Thus points where the thickness of air film is constant, will lie on a circle with O as center. By means of a sheet of glass G, a parallel beam of monochromatic light is reflected towards the lens L. Consider a ray of monochromatic light that strikes the upper surface of the air film nearly along normal. The ray is partly reflected and partly refracted as shown in the figure. The ray refracted in the air film is also reflected partly at the lower surface of the film. The two reflected rays, i.e. produced at the upper and lower surface of the film, are coherent and interfere constructively or destructively. When the light reflected upwards is observed through microscope M which is focused on the glass plate, series of dark and bright rings are seen with center as O. These concentric rings are known as " Newton's Rings ". At the point of contact of the lens and the glass plate, the thickness of the film is effectively zero but due to reflection at the lower surface of air film from denser medium, an additional path of λ/2 is introduced. Consequently, the center of Newton rings is dark due to destructive interference.

Construction Diffraction grating can be made by drawing a large number of equidistant and parallel lines on an optically plane glass plate with the help of a sharp diamond point. The rulings scatter the light and are effectively opaque, while the unruled parts transmit light and act as slits.
