Thomas Young's Double Slit Experiment is a science staple for early physics lessons about waves.
But did you know that you can recreate it at home with simple, everyday objects? In this Tech Lab, I show you how to use a laser pointer and create your very own apparatus for exploring double slit, single slit, and multi slit diffraction!
*NOTE* - The quantum double slit experiment, where measuring the photons at the slit breaks down the interference into two pools of light cannot be done at home, and was first performed over 100 years after Thomas Young's original experiment.
