Fresnel Diffraction Explorer simulates Fresnel diffraction by any two-dimensional aperture using an algorithm published in the Nov/Dec 1996 issue of Computers In Physics. It contains an interactive user-interface and a self-demo to aid in use of the algorithms. Parallelized for use with Pooch on Mac clusters.
