References for thin film physics?

  1. Nov 4, 2012 #1
    Hi all,
    I'm studying for the GRE test and I have noticed that sometimes questions about thin film appear.
    Is there any reference where I can learn some basical knowledge about thin film reflection and refraction? I'm not looking for something deep. Just a general overview.

    How about your introductory textbook? Almost all of them have a short section, if not a chapter, on thin film optics.

    Obviously I already looked at it and I found nothing...
