Interference and diffraction phenomena have been studied using Maxwell's equations yielding amplitude, phase and Poynting vector spatial distributions for a variety of geometries. This analysis has been used to refute claims that a pulsed microwave double slit experiment might challenge Complementarity. Recent work has concerned experimental checks on the recent suggestion that the classical electromagnetic field may, if circularly polarised, carry a longitudinal, constant component, the so-called B(3) field.
