Example text

When m is equal to zero, the grating acts as a mirror, all wavelengths being superimposed. For non-specular orders (m # 0) the angle of diffraction depends on the wavelength value that wavelengths are separated angularly. 2). Inthe grating theory instead of k, and another set of notations is often used, namelya and p, equal to k, and k,, normalized by the modulus of the wavevector k, that for the propagating diffraction orders, a = nsine and p = ncose, where n is the refractive index. The quantity is called gratingwavenumber (or gratingvector).

311. However,Lommelgotaroundthis by taking advantage of atechnique developed earlier by Becquerel. This was to use phosphorescent surfaces which lose their properties temporarily following radiation by IR light. 32]. 33].
