Medical Definition of Newton's interference colours

1. Newton's series of colours by interference results when two wave-trains of white light meet. For some wavelengths (colours) there will be destructive interference (darkness) but for other wavelengths there will be reinforcement (colour). They are most frequently observed in very thin films, only wavelengths thick, for example, oil on water. The interference is caused by partially reflected light from the interfaces. Newton's series of colours appears in sequence in the Michel-Levy chart. (05 Aug 1998)
