[filmscanners] RE: Avoiding Newton rings

Newton rings are caused by small variations in the distance between two
reflective surfaces. If the surfaces are perfectly parallel, there will be
no Newton rings; if the angle between the surfaces is sufficiently great,
there will be no visible Newton rings. Only when the surfaces are almost
parallel do you see the artifacts. Since we're talking about variations on
the order of a few wavelengths of light, there's not much you can do at the
macroscopic level that humans operate to control this effect. About all you
can do is use a mount that has anti-Newton texturing on it (a very slight
matte finish). However, it will blur the image, so I've found.

I'd like to find a better way to flatten out buckled transparencies. I
wonder if there's some sort of heat treatment...
