Dispersion of Light

Description
Prism color dispersion, ala Pink Floyd. Move the white dot to change the orientation of the incident ray of white light. Use the sliders to adjust the index of refraction of the surrounding material (n1), the red light index of refraction of the prism (nred), and the percent difference between the index of refraction of the prism for red light and the index of refraction of the prism for violet light (% Difference).
