Abstract

The theory of boundary diffraction waves (BDWs) is gaining importance due to its simplicity and physically appealing nature. The present work reports formation of circular fringes far away from the geometrically illuminated region by interference of two BDWs. One BDW is reconstructed from the hologram while the second is coming directly from the knife-edge. The uniqueness of the fringes is that their position can be controlled on the screen at will and fringes can be produced with bright as well as dark central fringe. These results could play an important role in understanding the nature of diffraction of light.
