  • Learning Objectives

    On completion of this TLP you should:

    • Be familiar with one-dimensional and two-dimensional diffraction using a laser.
    • Be able to relate features of the diffraction pattern to the diffracting object.
    • Understand the concepts of the back focal plane; and bright and dark field image formation.

    Before you start

    Whilst a very basic knowledge of the physics of waves and optics is assumed, this teaching and learning package covers the fundamentals of diffraction and imaging.
