Diffraction pattern of White LED torch

Diffraction pattern of White LED torch

The image was captured by illuminating a diffraction google with a LED torch. One may easily see the white zero order term along with other diffraction orders. All the diffraction terms (except for zero order) show the different wavelengths diffracted at different angle (longer wavelength diffraction at higher angle). Manish Kumar, University of Michigan
