With white light
PRESENTATION: We can observe interference phenomena with White light if we create a thin film of some material on which the light can be reflected and refracted easily, such as a thin oil film on a water surface or a thin air film between 2 plastic layers. The thickness in each point determines the colour of the interference strips.
