Medical Definition of Monochromator

1. A light-dispersing instrument which is used to obtain light of substantially one wavelength, or at least of a very narrow band of the spectrum. The light is apt to be weak because of its purity. The use of monochromatic light filters is usually adequate for microscopical work. (05 Aug 1998)
