Diffraction is the process by which a source of light, sound, or other system of waves is spread as a result of passing through a narrow aperture or across an edge, typically accompanied by interference between the waveforms produced. TEDxCMU Diffraction represents people who are willing to use their voice to influence, persuade, and change others' worldview and perspective exponentially.
Diffraction represents interaction and dissemination of ideas. It is using one voice to spread ideas to many others. Diffraction keeps us open-minded and open to new perspectives. We bring together a diverse set of perspectives to keep us open-minded and excited to absorb innovative ideas and perspectives. We realize their voice can have an impact.
