Graphics researchers discover the secret behind rainbows

New Rising Media: "What started as a research project into improving the amount of finite detail that goes into CGI film and video game backgrounds, turned into a discovery about the physics of rainbows and how they are formed.

Computer Scientists at the Jacobs School of Engineering in UC San Diego are to publish their research project 'ACM Transactions in Graphics' this month, where they set out to improve the graphical details in computer simulations of rainbows. However the project, led by Henrik Wann Jensen (Oscar Winner and graphics specialist of Avatar) stumbled across answering a few physics based questions about how these colourful arcs form."
