Fig. 18.  Analyses of interactions of pulsons with the Fresnel diffraction mask.

A.Mask configuration.  Structure of the mask provides a barrier with edges AC and BD analogous to the barrier of Fig. 6 and two slits, one with edges C’E’ versus CE, and one with edges DF versus D’F’, each, analogous to the aperture of Fig. 9.  All are in the same plane.  Thus a pulson with parallel criton fronts approaching the mask (See Fig. 2-E.) may interact with edges in the mask to create sets of secondary, coherent, entangled pulsons.  Twin, coherent, entangled sets of pulsons may be created at the edges of AC and BD along diagonals across the barrier ABCD.  In a corresponding fashion, quartets of coherent, entangled pulsons may be created at the edges of slits along diagonals that connect the edges defined by C’E’ versus D’F’, C’E’ versus FF’, and D’F’ versus EE’.  Triplet sets may be created between the lines AC’ versus D’F and BD’ versus C’E.  Entangled pulsons are connected via frequency, temporal coherence, and polarization to an originating pulson.

B. Phase differences between slit pulsons.  The differences in distances for entangled pulsons from the respective edges of a slit may be represented by the relationships of two right triangles in the plane of polarization.  The distance x for the inside pulson is always less than the distance y.  As the distance between the mask and the detection screen increases the relative differences between x and y decreases.  The phase relationships of pulsons at the detection screen changes accordingly creating a shift in the interference intensities of fringe patterns.

C.Zone width.  As the angles at which pulson fronts cross the centerline become more acute, the zone of intense constructive interference becomes narrower.  Thus the zone of intense mutual interference between four edge pulsons from respective edges of twin slits is narrower than for the two edges of the upper barrier.
