visible light

Etymology: L, visus, sight; AS, leoht
the radiant energy in the electromagnetic spectrum that is visible to the human eye. See also visible spectrum.

visible light,

n the radiant energy in the electromagnetic spectrum that is visible to the human eye. The wavelengths cover a range of approximately 390 to 780 nm.
visible-light cure,
n system designed to control the curing time of material that hardens over time; when light is withheld, the material is malleable for a longer duration; when light is applied, the material hardens rapidly.
