th

February 2012 at 4. Attempt answers to all questions.

Hand in your script by the deadline into the post box near the secretaries oces on level 1.

Assignments handed in past the deadline will not be marked. Course title, week

number and student name should appear on every sheet of the worked exercises, which

should be securely bound together. Please also write your tutors initials and time of

tutorial on the cover sheet.

Quick part A type questions [20 marks]

(i) Consider an electron of kinetic energy 1 eV. Calculate its de Broglie wavelength. Justify

with an explicit calculation whether you can used a non-relativistic approximation or not.

[5]

(ii) Consider an electron of kinetic energy 1 GeV. Calculate its de Broglie wavelength.

Justify with an explicit calculation whether you can used a non-relativistic approximation

or not. [5]

(iii) Consider a bullet of mass 150 g and speed 320 m/s. Calculate its de Broglie wave-

length. [5]

(iv) Consider an idealised single-slit experiment performed with electrons of de Broglie

wavelength . The length of the slit is a. What condition should obey in order to have

diraction? [5]

Problem 1 [20 marks]

Consider the Compton scattering of a beam of X-ray photons of wavelength = 0.1 nm

by a free electron which is initially at rest.

(i) Write down the momentum and energy conservation equations. [5]

(ii) Prove that the angle between the direction of the scattered electron and the incident

beam is related to the angle formed by the direction of the outgoing photons with the

direction of the incident beam by the following equation

where E is the energy of the incident photon. [15]

Problem 2 [10 marks]

Consider a single slit of length a = 0.01 mm. Light of wavelength = 500 nm is diracted

through the slit. Find the separation of the rst two minima on a screen parallel to the

slits, at a distance D = 1 m from the slits. [10]

Optional

We saw in class that the diraction + interference gure from a double-slit experiment

(with a = size on one slit, d = separation between the slits, d a) is expressed by the

following curve:

.

Let me set f(x) := (sin

x)/x

, and g(x) = 1 +cos x. Then our function is I f(x)g(x),

where x := (a/) sin , and x := 2(d/) sin , with 1 since d a.

Using a computer programme, plot the three curves y = f(x)g(x), y = 2f(x), and

y = g(x) for particular values of (e.g. = 4). It is particularly useful if you manage

to plot them in the same gure. Use some programme to nd the approximate position

of the maxima (in class we have determined their position approximatively; and we have

determined exactly the position of the minima).

In case you cannot do it, on the next page you can see my plots, for = 4. For convenience,

on the x axis I am actually indicating x/, which is easier to visualise (so when you read,

for instance, 1 on the x axis, it corresponds to x = ).

The blue plot corresponds to y = f(x)g(4x) (interference + diraction), the green one

is the diraction from a single slit which I multiplied by two to normalise it to the same

total intensity of the previous curve hence it is y = 2f(x). Finally, the purple plot

is the interference between the two slits discarding diraction from single slits, namely

y = g(4x).

Note that the maxima of the blue curve are approximatively where those of the purple

curve are. Note also that the position of the minima of the curves are exactly the same.

Finally, note that the minima from the diraction from single slit curve (green curve) are

much farther apart their position is a multiple of /a which is much larger than /d.

Finally, try to see what happens when the frequency of oscillations become very large, or,

equivalently, 0 (you can arrange this by replacing x by x a very large number; try

for example x 30x. This is the classical limit...what happens to the diraction gure?

Have fun!
