Abstract
Consider a ray of light that is incident upon a surface that is contaminated with a thin film of thickness x that is partially reflective and partially transmissive, Figure 2-1. Conservation of energy requires that the sum of the energies that are reflected back to space, R , absorbed by the thin film, A , and transmitted through the film, T , be equal to the incident energy, I .
