Abstract

Various interference pattern formations have been investigated using six countering laser beams that form a six-sided pyramid. Phase shift and amplitude variations among the interfering beams are very useful for designing interference patterns summarized here. The interference patterns are categorized into 32 unit figures, and structural changes with different thresholds are investigated in detail.
