Newton black film

https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.N04136
In @[email protected] films, two types of @[email protected] are often observed, sometimes successively in the same system: one characterized by thicknesses of the order of \(7\ \text{nm}\) or more which varies significantly with minor changes in composition such as @[email protected], and the other having a lesser thickness relatively independent of such changes. When a distinction is needed, the former are designated as @[email protected], and the latter as Newton black films. The current use of first or secondary for the @[email protected] and of second, primary or Perrin's for the Newton black film is discouraged.
