26.19. Set Up: Consider light reflected at the front and rear surfaces of the film. At the front surface of the film, light in air reflects from the film and there is a phase shift due to the reflection. At the back surface of the film, light in the film reflects from glass and there is no phase shift due to reflection. Therefore, there is a net phase difference produced by the reflections. The path difference for these two rays is 2 t , where t is the thickness of the film. The wavelength in the film is Solve: (a) Since the reflection produces a net phase difference, destructive interference of the reflected light occurs when The minimum thickness is 96.4 nm. (b) The next three thicknesses are for 3 and 4: 192 nm, 289 nm and 386 nm. Reflect: The minimum thickness is for Compare this to Problem 26.15, where the minimum thickness for destructive interference is 26.20. Set Up: The path length is The wavelength in the film is Solve: The number of waves is 26.21.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
