This web site contains a collection of more than 50 Java applets on the topic of light and color perception. Each applet depicts only one phenomenon, and most are interactively controlled by the user.  High school teachers may wish to provide conceptual support for students, as text-based explanations are not provided with the applets. Topics include color, perception, spectroscopy, and moire patterns.
