Meyerhof, M. The formation of rainbow was considered as a basic problem in the optical sciences from ancient time to the Middle Ages, both in the East and the West.
The Rainbow is an optic and metrological phenomenon, an arc of concentric colored bands, single circular arc of non repeating colors, one of the most spectacular light shows observed on earth, and a most charming example of chromatic dispersion. All of us have admired the majestic beauties of a rainbow.
For many centuries, the rainbow has been worshiped as god and goddess, and sometimes feared as demon.
Several of the most famous medieval Muslim philosophers, mathematicians, astronomers, and physicians studied the fundamental nature and function of vision and of light.
