Psychedelic soap bubbles as you never seen before!
We have news for you, soap can be psychedelic, and we have the Psychedelic soap bubbles photos to prove it. You know that moment at a party when someone blows soap bubbles to the air? If you’re quick enough you know how amazing it can look.
How do psychedelic patterns appear on Soap bubbles?
A soap bubble is an extremely thin film of soapy water enclosing air that forms a hollow sphere with an iridescent surface. Soap bubbles usually last for only a few seconds before bursting, either on their own or on contact with another object.
You know that moment at a party when someone blows soap bubbles to the air?
When light shines onto a bubble it appears to change colour. Unlike those seen in a rainbow, which arise from differential refraction, the colours seen in a soap bubble arise from interference of light reflecting off the front and back surfaces of the thin soap film. Depending on the thickness of the film, different colours interfere constructively and destructively.
