These unique diode lasers take the frustration out of aligning the laser beam with the diffraction slits. With both lasers, you can demonstrate the effect of changing wavelength on the diffraction and interference patterns.
A red laser beam was passed through a double slit. Then the Red Diode Laser was replaced by the Green Diode Laser by simply pulling the Red Laser off the optics track and clipping the Green Laser into its place. The recorded patterns from red and green lasers show clearly that the longer red wavelength is spread out more than the green.
