They possess far-infrared ray emission and thermal characteristics.
Because the Herschel instruments record radiation mostly at far-infrared and sub-millimeter wavelengths at an unprecedented scale and sensitivity, it will be possible to detect and characterize many previously invisible objects that are obscured by clouds of gas and dust or that are so cold that they do not emit any visible radiation at all.
is a personal far-infrared (FIR) sauna cabinet called the Saunex, constructed of molded ABS plastic sections joined with stainless-steel fasteners.
This method is based on the transmission of polarized far-infrared radiation.
Contract awarded for Selected students used the gym far-infrared tube heaters purchased and installed
The topics include insights from X-ray Raman scattering at high pressure into probing pressure-induced bonding transitions in crystalline and amorphous earth materials, analyzing mineral surfaces by atomic force microscopy, carrying over sampling errors and other problems in far-infrared to far-ultraviolet spectra to associated applications, nuclear magnetic radiation spectroscopy of inorganic earth materials, high-pressure apparatus integrated with synchrotron radiation, and in situ high-temperature experiments.
Far-infrared maps of inter-stellar gas show four large arms, whereas stars seen in infrared with NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope strongly outline only two.
The new far-infrared Herschel view shows in spectacular detail the scene playing out around the Horsehead Nebula at the right-hand side of the image, where it seems to surf like a "white horse" in the waves of turbulent star-forming clouds.
Galaxies which are brightest at Herschel's far-infrared wavelengths are typically seen as they were around 10 billion years ago, the light having been travelling towards us since that time.
General topics of the 14 review talks, 45 contributed talks and 112 posters include the physics of dust and molecular gas, galaxies in the local universe, galaxies in the field and in clusters at moderate redshifts, far-infrared diagnostics, starburst galaxies, continuum and broadband diagnostics, galaxies at high redshift, active galactic nuclei, the starburst/AGN connection and ULIRG dynamics, feedback and the environment and future prospects in research.
That's when they began analyzing data from the first spacecraft to survey the entire sky at mid- and far-infrared wavelengths.
From near- to far-infrared analysis, Frontier is our most powerful spectrometer to date.
