In Rainbows

Continuing with my recent spectral findings, I used other glasses, with and without various liquids to create multicolored light experiments.

The refraction of light above and below a layer of liquid shows a rainbow of colors.

multicolored one

By moving the angle of the iPhone camera by small amounts, a full range of the color spectrum could be captured.

multicolored two

Bold reds to pastel pinks could be found in different chroma ranges as the light shifted.multicolored three

Brilliant blues shown under muted rose and lavender.

multicolored four

Another slight shift introduced yellows and chartreuse into the frequency range. I couldn’t see these colors with the naked eye, but the iPhone camera was able to find them!

multicolored five
