Colours of thin films

Colours of thin films

Everyone is familiar with the brilliant colours exhibited by a thin oil film spread on the surface of water and also by a soap bubble. These colours are due to interference between light waves reflected from the top and bottom surfaces of thin filims. When white light is incident on a thin film, the film appers coloured and the colour depends upon the thickness of the film and also the angle of incidence of the light.
