Diamond Light Dispersion

Angled Light AnimationVertical Light

Diamonds have a high index of refration (n = 2.4195) and coefficient of dispersion (COD = 0.044). When light reaches a boundary, it can refract or reflect, in proportion to the Fresnel Reflection Coefficient. The angle of the refracted light is given by Snell’s Law: n1sin(θ1) = n2sin(θ2)
