What seems even more wonderful is that these spectral colors can be recombined so as to make white light.
"General Science" by Bertha M. Clark
About him, causing his figure to appear gigantic, his shadow grotesque, the yellow gleam of the light shone in spectral coloring.
"Beth Norvell" by Randall Parrish
One of the defects of the light emitted by the incandescent vapor of mercury is its paucity of spectral colors.
"Artificial Light" by M. Luckiesh
The parallel harmony among the spectral colors is blue, violet, and orange.
"The Continental Monthly , Vol. 2 No. 5, November 1862" by Various
The spectral colors are arranged in order along the heavy solid line, and the purples along the heavy dotted line.
"Psychology" by Robert S. Woodworth
Its color was a spectral silvery blue, much like that of the moon when seen in the daytime.
"A Volunteer with Pike" by Robert Ames Bennet
To facilitate comparison, spectral lines and colors are given in Table 4.

In science:

In §4 I use colors and model fits to the 9-filter spectral energy distributions (SEDs) to compute redshifts and classify the EROs as either ellipticals or dusty starbursts.
A Deep Multicolor Survey. VII. Extremely Red Objects and Galaxy Formation
The drawback is that this involves a description of spectral shape in terms of more numbers (the spectral parameters) than just two X-ray colors, and that the correct models are unknown.
A review of rapid X-ray variability in X-ray binaries
Figure 1.1: Left: Spectral evolution of the combined optical flux density of GRB 030329, the associated SN2003dh, and its host galaxy (colored lines) compared to the spectrum of SN1998bw (dashed line).
Gamma-Ray Bursts, Collisionless Shocks and Synthetic Spectra
Spectral properties of the 3D model are rather sensitive to convection too, which results in significant differences between photometric colors calculated with the 3D and 1D model atmospheres.
Convection and observable properties of late-type giants
The chosen color corresponds to a spectral class of about M2 and an effective temperature of about 3500 K.

Figure 6: Systematics in the Fe/Ne abundance ratio as a function of spectral type; stellar types are as indicated by the symbols and colors.
X-rays from young stars - a summary of highlights from the XMM-Newton Extended Survey of the Taurus Molecular Cloud (XEST)
Recently, a comparison has been proposed based on ‘disk-fraction luminosity diagrams’ (DFLDs), where in place of an X-ray color the fraction of the overall spectral distribution attributed to the accretion disk is used .
States and transitions in black-hole binaries
This spectral angle matching thus provides full-color image segmentation, a capability which was lacking in previous work within this project.

However, results for biasing also depend on the length scale over which a fit is done, and the selection of the ob jects by luminosity, spectral type, or color.
The Cosmological Parameters 2010
We find that the spectral classification of quasars is redshift and luminosity dependent; Conclusions Hence, we claim the possible universality of the color of the galaxies on the red sequence.

The properties of these ob jects (position, proper motion, magnitude, color, spectral and variability types, radial velocities and multiplicity) were compiled and published in the Hipparcos Input Catalogue (ESA 1992).
From Hipparcos to Gaia
Contrary to widespread opinion, color transparency (CT) brings essential ambiguity to, rather than helps in, study of the nuclear spectral function in quasielastic lepton scattering, A(l, l ′ p)A′ , at high Q2 .
High $Q^2$ Probe of Nuclear Spectral Function and Color Transparency
Figure a illustrates how spectral absorption features such as the Balmer H(cid:14) equivalent width can be used to detect late bursts of star formation in early-type galaxies with colors otherwise typical of old, passively evolving stellar populations.
SPECTRA OF YOUNG GALAXIES
In both cases, the spectral lines of the WR stars are “diluted” by the other star’s light, and the corresponding location of these stars on our color diagrams lie closer to the origin of the axis than the corresponding uncontaminated spectral types (Sect. 4.3).
A dedicated photometric system for the detection of Wolf-Rayet stars
They applied the color-redshift relations to the HDF photometric catalog and obtained estimated redshifts that are consistent with those derived from spectral template fitting methods.
