Abstract

The effects of diffraction and interference on the images of sharp edges and slits viewed through amplitude diffraction gratings have been measured. The parameters investigated were grating line pitch, object-plane to grating-plane distance, and width of object slit. Microdensitometer tracings and isodensitograms of representative examples are included in the paper.
