dispersion at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Any phenomenon associated with the propagation of individual waves at speeds that depend on their wavelengths. Wavelength determines the speeds at which waves travel through mediums. This variation in speed causes radiation to separate into components that have different frequencies and wavelengths. For example, when a beam of white light is sent through a glass prism, refraction causes the beam to disperse into an array of its component colors of light, producing a rainbowlike effect.
