Double Slit Diffraction Simulator

Whilst studying diffraction in physics, I was very puzzled as to how the double slit experiment worked and wanted to be able to visualize the process.

Hence I built a simulator that would enable me to understand the process more… and it actually worked!I

The program is quite rough around the edges, but the purpose of the project was speed rather than making a clean program. Please check out the github repository and have a play around with some of the parameters. Its interesting to see the way the superposition of the cyan and yellow wave on top of each other.
