Many times these interference properties are investigated through the use 
of diffraction gratings. A grating is a huge collection of tightly spaced 
slits - usually upwards of 5 x 105 slits per meter. The distance between 
the slits in a grating is calculated as the reciprocal of its grating 
spacing. That is 
d = 1/[number of slits/meter]
