Diffraction of Light

Yet again this pattern was created by laser beam as it falls on the patterned surface of the diffractive optical element called photon sieve and than reflected in the lens ball. I called it "Photon ball". Photon sieve is a deployable primary mirror for cadet project 3U Satellite FalconSAT-7. It will be deployed on orbit and image the sun from space.
