Maxwell II. Modes and Mode Propagation

In the chapter on interference we discussed the resonance mode of a Fabry– Perot. We found that all light was transmitted for a specific wavelength λ and separation D of the Fabry–Perot plates. The condition for generation of the modes was D =mλ/2, where m was an integer.
