Dispersion  of  light  is  the  phenomenon  of  splitting  of a  beam  of white  light  into  its seven constituent colours on passing through a glass prism. The band of coloured components of a light beam is called its spectrum. The cause  of  dispersion is  that  different  colours  of  white  light  with  different  wavelengths  undergo different deviations on passing through a glass prism.
