35.31: Destructive interference for 800 λ 1 = nm incident light. Let n be the refractive index of the oil. There is a 2 / λ phase shift for the reflection at the air-oil interface but no phase shift for the reflection at the oil-water interface. Therefore, there is a net 2 / λ phase difference due to the reflections, and the condition for destructive interference is ). / λ ( 2 n m t = Smallest nonzero thickness means .
