6 Point source in the centre and waves radiating outwards like waves on a pond. Wavefronts are planes with separation equal to one (or multiples of a) wavelength. Plane waves Up to this point wave motion has been considered as a one-dimensional vibration. Real light waves travelling in an isotropic homogeneous medium spread out at the same speed in all directions. Thus we need to consider light waves propagating out from a point source in three dimensions, similar to water waves moving out from a cocentral point in a pond.

According to Huygens, every point on a wavefront is considered to be a new point source, from which secondary ‘wavelets’ spread out in a forward direction. 7. The advancing wave as a whole may be regarded as the sum of all the secondary waves arising from points in the medium. e. e. has the same properties throughout its mass), both of which are true for Wavefronts Wavelets most optical media. The straight line of propagation or of ‘energy flow’, which is always perpendicular to the wavefront, is considered as a light ray and many optical effects assume light as rays (as in geometric optics).
