Experimental nuclear and particle physicist. These days I'm teaching, but I've spent a lot of time on nucleon structure in fixed target electron scattering and neutrino oscillations using reactors and beam sources.

comment Are colors real?
Color is not a physical property it is perception. Frequency is a physical property, and while it is linked to the perceived color it is not uniquely linked. Even among humans the very range of frequencies that are visible varies a little; meaning that you can get two people in front of a spectrascope and find that only one of them can see a particular line. I was the one who couldn't.

Define "true color" as distinct form just plain ol' color and we might be able to tell you.

comment Are colors real?
We've had this before (link required 10k rep), but it is deleted now, so I will copy the comment I made then: "What is it with would-be philosophers who want physics to weigh in on the reality of things that people experience everyday? Frankly, the whole idea is silly. Color is the name we assign to the perception of different quality in light linked to the spectrum (rather than intensity) of the light."
