The book analyses the fundamental nature of light by means of the refraction of light with prisms and lenses, thediffraction of light by closely spaced sheets of glass, and the behaviour of color mixtures with spectral lights or pigment powders. It is considered one of the great works of science in history. Opticks was Newton’s second major book on physical science.”
