Caption

Diffraction demonstration using a sheet of mica. Mica has highly ordered cleavage planes and crystals, allowing sheets of this silicate mineral to be used to demonstrate diffraction of a candle flame. Diffraction is the bending of light waves into ordered patterns as they pass through or by an object. These properties Artwork from the ninth volume (first period of 1892) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
