two waves interferences


dark newton ring fringes by a spherical surface in contact with a plane surface


Caution
Fill in all cells except one.
Choose all parameters unit.
The spherical surface is supposed convex.
Both surfaces where reflection occur are supposed to be dielectric interfaces. Consequently there is an air/glass and a glass/air reflection introducing an additionnal phase shift of p.
Order 0 correspond to the central ring, which is dark.
All parameters are positive.
