The Thin Film Interference model investigates reflection and transmission of light through a thin film. The user can change the thickness and index of refraction of the thin film as well as the incident light wavelength.

The Thin Film Interference Model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_bu_ThinFilm.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
