Abstract
When a wave packet of light passes through a dielectric film it is found that at a transmission maximum, the group velocity of the light wave packet within the film attains its minimum value. Similarly, at a transmission minimum, it is found that the group velocity of the light wave packet within the film attains its maximum value. The measurability of this effect is also discussed.
