How does energy separate in the fringes produced by intersecting beams?
Author(s): Chandrasekhar Roychoudhuri; Kenneth Bernier

Paper Abstract

Spatial energy re-distribution as interference fringes are recorded when two spatially and temporally coherent beams intersect. We show simple experiments with different recording materials to explain this energy re-distribution process. Interference effects are manifest in materials as dictated by their quantum properties because optical fields do not interfere with (or operate on) each other.
