I'm currently doing an experiment involving a spectrometer, a sodium light
source and a diffraction grating. I set up the spectrometer using 'Schuster's
Method', i.e. finding the position of minimum deviation etc, but just can't
figure out how this works. Is the light being diffracted and with each focus
it's being diffracted less? I just don't get it...
