Abstract

It is shown that the Fraunhofer diffraction pattern of a tilted aperture screen can be interpreted as a monocular view of the Ewald sphere. Two of those patterns recorded at opposite tilting angles are used to give a stereoscopic impression of the Ewald sphere. Experimental results are shown, and the approximations involved are discussed.
