Electromagnetic Radiation

Light, or visible light, commonly refers to electromagnetic radiation that can be detected by the human eye. The entire electromagnetic spectrum is extremely broad, ranging from low energy radio waves with wavelengths that are measured in meters, to high energy gamma rays with wavelengths that are less than 1 x 10-11 meters.

The Connection of Light and Color

The science of light and color as it relates to tattoo removal in Rome, GA

Light and color are inextricably connected; in a sense, light is color. The visible spectrum of electromagnetic energy is a range. Light at one end has a shorter wavelength and appears violet. Light at the other end has a longer wavelength and appears red. All other colors – blue, blue-green, green, yellow and orange – appear in the middle. Light that features all the visible wavelengths in roughly equal amounts appears white. Note, however, that these quantities do not have to be precise. The various wavelengths within a given light source – its color makeup – can vary greatly and it will still appear white.
