Cosmiscape Fine Art Print

Karl Gaff Photography

  • When two fluids of different surface tensions are mixed, a complex interplay of fluid dynamics unfolds. In this case, the fluid is a mixture of washing up liquid and water. By introducing some sugar into the mixture, the lifetime of the film can be extended, whilst the continuous film breaks up into islands, as seen here. The islands are lipid globules floating on a thin film whose thickness is too thin to support the interference of light, so that it appears as black as space. On the other hand, the islands and continuous lipid film produce dazzling interference colours because their film thickness is on the same order of magnitude as the wavelength of light. Variations in colour are a result of the modulations in the thickness of the film. The film is thickest in the lower right of the image and gradually thins out diagonally towards the upper right, before completely falling off to several nanometers where it becomes jet black. Magnification 150x. Imaged with polarised light microscopy
