### HP35S Fraunhofer Diffraction - Spherical

HP35S Fraunhofer Diffraction - Spherical
Source: HP 67/97 Optics Pac, June 1978

This version takes advantage of the HP's integral function. The trade off is that two labels are required. On the plus side, this program can be typed directly into a 32Sii or 33S.

Labels: F (Main), G (Integral)

Variables:

D = diameter in microns (10^-6 meters)
L = wavelength of light in microns (10^-6 meters)
A = θ, angle of the slit, entered in degrees

Formulas:

X = π D ÷ L
W = X sin A
J = int(cos(T - W sin T) dT, 0, π)/π
I = (X^2 J ÷ W)^2

Output:

Bessel function of the first kind (J) - paused for 2 seconds;
Fraunhofer Intensity (I) - dimensionless - as I understand it, this is how intense the diffraction is

1. Hello,

I was just reading over the manual, it is really scary that when the battery dies, all of the programming is wiped out. Isn't there a way to export the program to my laptop or something to save it for future use?

Thank you. ntizani@yahoo.com

5. When the batteries get replaced on the HP 35S, the memory is cleared. There is no way to store the programs through the USB port (unfortunately).
