High-output, low-loss laser design technique with wider near-ultraviolet laser optical waveguide and optimized light loss control.
Like a prism, STIS separated light into its component colors, and it then recorded the intensity of wavelengths ranging from the near-ultraviolet to the near-infrared.
It is the responsible institute for the Lunar near-Ultraviolet Telescope aboard Chang'e-3.
Images of the core of NGC 4150, taken in near-ultraviolet light with the sharp-eyed Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3), reveal streamers of dust and gas and clumps of young, blue stars that are significantly less than a billion years old.
Irradiation of the partially built oligomer with near-ultraviolet wavelengths (mainly 365 nm) deprotects the terminal hydroxyl group, and the use of appropriate masks allows for control of the sequence of the probe and the size of the features.
One way to achieve this effect is to use an Earth-orbiting satellite, such as ACRIM, that monitors the total amount of radiation that the sun emits at wavelengths ranging from the near-ultraviolet to the near-infrared.
