What is Blue Light?
Light is made up of electromagnetic particles that travel in waves. The waves emit energy, and vary in length and strength.
Blue light has a very short wavelength, and therefore produces a higher amount of energy.
The human eye is sensitive to only the visible light section of the spectrum, which we see as colors: violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red.
