Newton noticed this effect more than 200 years ago, and wrote about it in his "Optics." He suggested it as a test for inaccuracies in lenses.
Particle theory doesn't allow for additive power of energy. But wave theory does. The problem with quantum theory is that it has dropped the wave-evidence for electromagnetic radiation; it only explains the particle side of life.
Any good physics textbook ought to explore this. Remember, in science, the simplest explaination is almost always the best.

I don't see a reason for parallel universes in this experiment. If you simply see light as a wave, the experiment is nothing more than an interference experiment. Deutsch wants to explain this particle/wave duality with parallel universes, which might be true, but I don't think this is required to explain the phenomena.
