Hello, I am new to this forum. The following code should produce the interference of two plane waves. The output should not show as much variation as the following code shows. Please help me understand where I have gone wrong. cm = 1.0; fld[E0_, r : {_, _, _}, k : {_, _, _}, ph_] := E0*Exp[I*(k.r + ph)]; \[Lambda] = .0001*cm; k = 2. \[Pi]/\[Lambda]; z = 100.*cm; Table[ ListContourPlot[ Table[ Abs[ fld[1, {x, y, z}, {0, k, 0.}, 0.] + fld[1, {x, y, z}, {k, k, 0.}, 0.] ]^2, {x, -.5*cm, .5*cm, 1*cm/i}, {y, -.5*cm, .5*cm, 1*cm/i}], ContourLines -> False, Contours -> 100, Frame -> True, Background -> None]; , {i, 10, 200, 20}]; With my regards, Subimal Link to the forum page for this post: http://www.mathematica-users.org/webMathematica/wiki/wiki.jsp?pageName=Special:Forum_ViewTopic&pid=14998#p14998 Posted through http://www.mathematica-users.org [[postId=14998]]
