thin films, colors, physical laws
The experiment that was carried out was the production of thin films of titanium dioxide, on glass prisms as substrates, in this way continuous traces of material with varying thicknesses were generated, from the base of the prisms to areas near the tip. This continuous trace caused a step in thicknesses of the atomic levels, to the levels that can already be considered macroscopic. The parameters of fluence, power density, vacuum pressure, are important, however for the results, they simply remained as secondary data.
The continuous trace generated a pattern of colors, according to the thickness of the film, which immediately attracted the optical interference equations to calculate the thicknesses, according to the wavelengths shown, however there were problems when trying to describe the thickness pattern, since the results were not congruent, so that they were congruent it was required to use a sharp jump in thickness at some point
