Abstract

A class of spectral fringes, families of which are produced by use of surfaces having equal reflection coefficient ratios, can be demonstrated by use of a suitable polarizing assembly and spectrometer. The theory of these fringes and their use in the determination of both the thickness and refractive index of monomolecular films is discussed.
