Double-slit experiment, Physics

Double-slit experiment (T. Young; 1801):

A popular experiment which illustrates the wave nature of light (and indeed of other particles). Light is passed out from a small source onto an opaque screen along two thin slits. The light is diffracted by these slits & develops an interference pattern on the other side of the screen.
