Produce a 2-dimensional contour plot of the intensity distribution in the Fraunhofer diffraction pattern of a square aperture. Choose a software package. (Assume u(x0,y0) = 1 if |x0| < a/2, |y0| < a/2 and zero otherwise, and let z/k >>a2.) Label your plot properly and comment how the plot depends on your choices for l, a, and z.
Produce a similar plot for a rectangular aperture. ( Assume u(x0,y0) = 1 if |x0| < a/2, |y0| < 3a/2 and zero otherwise.)
Write a short project proposal. Tell me what you plan to do, why you have chosen that project, and how you plan to accomplish your goal. Be specific enough so I can judge the feasibility of the project. I will then discuss the details of your project with you and hopefully give you some helpful tips.
