Abstract

Diffraction of a plane wave by multiple slits is investigated by a method that uses a set of orthonormal functions and Fourier transformations. A solution satisfying the wave equation and the boundary conditions is obtained. Expressions for the transmission coefficient and the far field are derived from the solution, and some numerical results are given.
