On The Nature Of Iridescent Patterns Of Some Molluscan Shells

[Full Text]

 

AUTHOR(S)

Konwar R, BARUAH. G. D

 

KEYWORDS

Iridescent patterns, Molluscan shells.

 

ABSTRACT

The present work is concerned with the iridescent patterns of some specimens of molluscan shells and their intensity distribution patterns worked out with the help of software. The iridescence colours of shells have been ascribed to diffraction and their laminated structures. In this case earlier observations by Sir C. V. Raman in connection with the iridescent patterns have been critically analysed.
