Figure 1:
Figure 1:

Ten intensity zones of a Gaussian beam (see text) within one z 0 longitudinally and 1.5w 0 radially of focus (the horizontal direction represents the z direction). The color scheme resembles the optical spectrum for frequency, i.e., orange represents lower values of the intensity and violet represents higher values of the intensity.

Figure 2:

Diffraction of an E-polarized plane wave normally incident on a metal grating [2]. The height of the colored surface shows the amplitude of the electric field and the color shows the phase of the field. This figure is linked (click in the blue box) to an enlarged version where the details of the E field are clearly visible. [Linked plot: 22 KB]

Sample from a Java applet of a plot of intensity for Fraunhofer diffraction from an N-slit grating, as a function of β for N=3, d/b=4. The plot ranges from β = -2π to β = 2π, and the peak value shown is I 0/N 2. To activate the applet, click in the blue box. [Media 3]
