Etymology : English polychromatic is a borrowing from French polychromatique, which comes from Greek polychr?matos ?many-colored, variegated? and the suffix -ique, from the Greek suffix -ikos or the Latin suffix -icus. Polychromatic is used mostly, but not exclusively, in the physical sciences, e.g., hematology, physics, and formerly in chemistry. Polychromatic entered English in the 19th century.
