Paper Abstract

Diffraction by small open lines in chrome (slits) has been measured and the data compared to scalar diffraction theory. The measurement system consists of a chopped HeNe laser illumination, a mask held by a translational and rotational stage, and a photomultiplier tube on a revolving arm connected to a lock-in amplifier under the control of an IBM PC XT computer. Results for slits down to a wavelength in size show transmission nearly proportional to slit size and only slight polarization effects. Initial plots of total transmitted power divided by slit size showed a decrease for small slits. However, correcting for mask bias and/or edge roughness shows agreement with rigorous electromagnetic theory.
