Phase Change due to reflection

Interference by wave-front and amplitude splitting.

Interference by wave-front and amplitude splitting.

Optics Series Lecture, Lecture – XIV, XV, XVI.

Topics covered in this lecture

A. Color of thin films

B. Newton’s rings

C. Lloyd’s mirror and

D. Phase changes during reflection

We have previously discussed what is interference and what are wave-front splitting and amplitude splitting interference. We have also discussed in much details two wave-front splitting interference viz.

a. Young’s double slit interference, here — Lecture — IX, and

b. Fresnel’s bi-prism, here —  Lecture – XI.

Today we will discuss one more wave-front splitting interference namely Lloyd’s mirror interference before moving onto the amplitude splitting interference of the Newton’s rings.

Also we will discuss two interesting and related concepts;

i. Phase change on reflection and

ii. Color of thin films
