Possible Nature of Light and other Emissions

The nature of white light, per Newton?s observations with prisms and the resulting spectra, is first considered. The enormous number of colors and independence of colored light rays becomes obvious. Using Galilean concepts [1],.the large required range of wavelengths might be by met by large velocity variations within the materials surrounding the atoms emitting those light rays. Those Galilean concepts may be correct, but these do not provide applicability over the larger EM spectrum. A better and simpler solution for variation in EM wavelengths over the 16 orders of magnitude is reachable with the Bohr Model of quantum mechanics by defining Bohr?s wavelength in the emitted photon energy term as between emitted photons. Emissions from the atoms are not ?..discrete wave-lengths nor ?. frequencies..?, nor wavelengths within the photons. A better concept might be that the discrete photons are separated by the discrete wavelengths. If correct, this may provide a better understanding of light as well as the other emissions in the full EM spec-trum.
