E3586: Seeing the world in a different light: Optics and spectroscopy in Splash! Spring 2014 (Apr. 12 - 13, 2014)
Light is composed of many "wavelengths" each responsible for a different color. In this class we'll pass light reflected from ordinary objects through a "diffraction grating" that separates out the different wavelengths. You'll see a rainbow of colors. Finally, we'll show how this science of "spectroscopy" is used in the real world to fingerprint different materials.
