  1. doesnt interference require the boundry on the far side to have a reflection? and that reflections phase shift is dependent on the difference between the velocity of light in the two mediums at the boundry?

    Is one of the formulas used in "thin film" interference problems 2t = (m + 0.5)(lambda/n_film) OR 2t = (m - 0.5)(lambda/n_film), where t is the thickness of the film? I might have copied my notes down incorrectly in class, because
