A Simple Experimental Setup to Clearly Show That Light Does Not Recombine after Passing through Two Prisms
Garcia-Molina, Rafael; del Mazo, Alejandro; Velasco, Santiago
Physics Teacher, v56 n1 p14-17 Jan 2018
We present a simple and cheap experimental setup that clearly shows how the colors of the white light spectrum after passing a prism do not recombine when emerging from an identical second prism, as it is still found in many references.
