New laser beam doesn't follow traditional laws of refraction.

So my first post, I thought this was pretty interesting. (It's in the Google main page news feed, [***edit, c0ldshadow adding the link for Zerosage since he didn't have access yet, https://phys.org/news/2020-08-class-laser-doesnt-laws-refraction.amp )***]

I'm not gonna pretend I totally understand this article, but it sounds like some precursor to teleporters down the line lol. One question I have is are they referring in some form or another to the rules from the slit experiment...or to which are they referring? Like the angle I think it's called theta? For like each color after it goes through something like a prism but the angle for that color is always exactly the same? Correct me when wrong please. Thank you.
