Abstract

Diffraction bands with black minima are produced by means of a single slit ruled in a light-absorbing film. Since these bands are at their best in the region of strong absorption, it is possible to follow with ease the anomalous dispersion of an aniline dye through the absorption band. Application of this procedure to the study of dispersion in gold films is also made.
