Paper Abstract

A new approach is introduced for the explanation of the formation of Talbot's bands by using the model of tilted pulse fronts. Numerical computations of this model are also given. An other interpretation of Talbot's original publication is also presented and explained. Simple experiments have been used to examine cautiously the dependence of the visibility of Talbot's bands on various properties of the plate: thickness, refractive index, dispersion. An experiment has been carried out to check the other interpretation, too.
