The OSAL Student Chapter of the University of Salamanca has been awarded second place at the Foton 2022 Awards in the Foton Emitted category, for its informative video “The colors in soap bubbles”.
The jury has positively valued “his ability to disclose to the general public, explaining the operation of the phenomenon of interference of light with an accessible and attractive example” in addition to his creativity when showing the colors that are produced in the bubbles.
The video explains the thin film interference phenomenon, which is responsible for the appearance of colors in soap bubbles and which also appears in other situations such as puddles or butterfly wings.
You can see this video (and other very interesting ones too) on the page of the OSAL Student Chapter of Salamanca and read the complete review of the award on the CSIC website.
