Caption: Light from a green solid state laser at 532 nanometers is transmitted through a single slit to show the characteristic diffraction pattern. The narrower the slit the more the diffraction pattern spreads out. If the wavelength of light is moved to a longer wave, the diffraction pattern will also spread out.
