Scientists create ‘time slits’ in mind-bending physics experiment

In a first, scientists have shown they can send light through “slits” in time.

The new experiment is a variation of a 220-year-old demonstration, in which light shines through two slits in a screen to create a unique diffraction pattern in space, where the peaks and valleys of the light wave add up or cancel each other out. In the new experiment, the researchers created a similar pattern over time, essentially changing the color of an ultra-short laser pulse.
