Abstract

One of the well-known effects of electromagnetic waves is interference. Redistribution of energy in interference is well documented in literature but the mechanism has not been discussed in detail. A set of new experiments has been designed and conducted to observe the actual redistribution of the energy of the electromagnetic waves while being interfered and after leaving the region of interference. In this paper, it is shown that the redistribution of energy in interference of electromagnetic waves maintains the energy distribution prevailed at the moment they leave the disturbance (interference) area. Modified wave fronts which separated after intersection of two coherent waves in microwave frequency is demonstrated. Results are presented in pictorial and graphical models in order to understand the phenomena,. Further experiments are underway and possible mechanism will be discussed later.
