I've just used "colored light" in the title to my History of Science and Mathematics SE question Did Newton every use filtered or prism-dispersed colored light to view “Newton's rings” or other thin-film interference effects? and I'm simply wondering if there available a different way to say it.
"Colored" is a valid and accurate term in this technical context but the word also has a substantial history when applied to people (discussion). I'm not saying it necessarily needs to be replaced in this particular case, I'm simply curious if an alternate exists.
Question: Is there a term for wavelength-restricted or filtered light having a fairly pure color besides "colored light"?
Thesaurus.com; colored provides terms that obviously won't work: dyed, flushed, glowing, hued, shaded, stained, tinged, tinted, washed
Merriam-Webster thesaurus/colored returns: chromatic, colorful, kaleidoscopic, motley, multicolored, multihued, polychromatic, polychrome, prismatic, rainbow, varicolored, varied, variegated, various
and if the wavelength range were very narrow one can use monochromatic but usually we don't use monochromatic to things like wide-band filter (e.g. stained glass, gel filters).
I then turned to Lennon's lyrics to Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds and there's "Cellophane flowers of yellow and green" and "With plasticine porters with looking glass ties" which invoke colorful images but offer no help here.
