Diffraction of light:definition,types and examples in physics

Diffraction of light definition “The bending of light waves around the corners of an opening or obstacle and spreading of light waves into geometrical shadow is called diffraction.”Diffraction effect depends upon the size of obstacle.Diffraction of light takes place if the size of obstacle is comparable to the wavelength of light.Light waves are very small in wavelength,i.e,from 4×10-7 m to 7 × ...
