Yellow is a color

Yellow is the color evoked by light that stimulates both the L and M (long- and medium-wavelength) cone cells of the retina about equally, but does not significantly stimulate the S (short-wavelength) cone cells; that is, light with lots of red and green but not much blue. Light with a wavelength of 560–580 nm is a yellow, as is light with a suitable mixture of somewhat longer and shorter wavelengths.
