Dear Community, I'm rather new to using mathematica and tried to solve an integral (notebook in the attachment and below), but it did not work. Could you please point me to my error? Thank you very much!

Daniel


a = 8.975*^-4 (* size width of the whole aperture *)
P = 94.7 \
(* distance from virtual point source to aperture *)
R = 105.9 \
(* distance from aperture to screen *)
\[Lambda] = 632*^-9 \
(* wave length *)
k =
2 \[Pi]/\[Lambda] (* wave vector *)
\[Phi][x_, y_] :=
Exp[-Ik (x^2/(2 P) + (x y)/R)]
\[CapitalPsi][y_] := Integrate[\[Phi][x, y], {x, -(a/2), a/2}]
Plot[\[CapitalPsi], {y, -.1, .1}]
