Paper Abstract

In this paper, we discuss some light diffraction phenomena with a simple quantum theory. Firstly, the wave function of the free particle in quantum mechanics is used to explain Fraunhofer diffraction of the light at a rectangular aperture, and the result is consistent with the Huygens-Fresnel principle. Secondly, probabilistic wave method is used to analyze the Talbot effect of a two-dimensional grating. The results show that the photons at the Talbot distance and incident photons are described by the same probability wave. Finally, Talbot effect is used to measure the wavelength of incident light.
