    On the same segment you will get 20 fringes, the double. But the intensity (energie) of fringe light decreases with the increase of fringes. The decrease of energie is express by this factor : \[\sin ^{2}(\pi.l.x/(\lambda.D))\] D : distance between screan and source \[\lambda\]: wavelenght l : slot width
