Chromatic aberration

Also called “color fringing,” this occurs when a lens does not bring all wavelengths of color to the same focal plane, and/or when wavelengths of color are focused at different positions on the focal plane, thereby producing generally purple artifacts along high-contrast borders in an image. See also LCA.
