Talbot Carpet for a Ronchi Grating
A Ronchi grating is a set of equally spaced parallel wires that creates a diffraction pattern known as a Talbot carpet. The pattern is repeated at multiples of a fixed distance
(the Talbot distance).

DETAILS
The wave in the carpet has the functional form
,
where
is the separation between slits in the Ronchi grating. Here the series is approximated with
terms and evaluated in steps of size
.
