How to use "Diffraction grating" in context?

There is a diffraction grating in optics that is used to produce images. In a diffraction grating, a series of closely spaced light reflecting surfaces separates the light into its component colors while passing through the grating. The different colors of light interact with each other more effectively than the light passing through the grating naked. This results in the production of an image of the object being observed on the grating's surface.
