Introduction

The electromagnetic spectrum is something that is more familiar than one might think. The light that our eyes can see is actually part of the electromagnetic spectrum. This visible part of the electromagnetic spectrum consists of the colors that we see in a rainbow - from reds and oranges, through blues and purples. Each of these colors actually corresponds to a different wavelength of light.
