Eine einfache Deutung der TALBOTschen Streifen



Talbot fring result from the diffraction of light by the Talbot slit and not primarily by the grating or prism. New experiments are described demonstrating the conditions for the appearance and disappearance of Talbot fringes. Simple relations habe been derived for the observation of Talbot fringes using a prism or a grating for the spectral decomposition.
