I deleted the cleanup tag, as it didn't appear that this article was in excessive disorder. You can put it back up if you disagree, but please post your reasons why here. Stephen (talk) 05:33, 14 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Does anyone have a video of this? It would be an excellent addition to the article. Axl ¤ [Talk] 12:44, 4 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Is a Rollin film visible?[edit]

At 30nm thickness, I suspect it's invisible. More specifically, I don't know what to make of this sentence in the paragraph about fountains: "If not for its evaporation in the presence of heat, a Rollin film would have a very low index of refraction". Does that mean that, because it can evaporate, the refractive index of a Rollin film is not low??? I'm inclined to delete the sentence, but maybe someone knows what the the original author meant to say. It could be replaced with a statement that, because of the low refractive index, the films are not visible. Spiel496 (talk) 14:44, 18 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


this "what if" from xkcd brought me here, and it did provide another reference that might be used to expand the article . But it's all a bit beyond my physics skills EdwardLane (talk) 13:45, 18 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
