Space Photos of the Week: Reading the Universe in the Infrared

The human eye can process light wavelengths in the range of 380 to 740 nanometers. However, there is a whole strip of "light" that we can not see. Cue the failed telescopes! This week, we'll be looking at photos of space filtered for the infrared – wavelengths from 700 nanometers to 1 millimeter. By filtering to infrared, scientists can see …

Scientists create super mice that can see infrared light

Could science ever give us superhuman abilities? A recent study suggests that this is indeed possible after researchers have used a nanoparticle solution to allow normal mice to see in the near infrared. Credit: Pixabay. "When we look at the universe, we only see visible light," said Gang Han, the project's lead researcher and researcher at the University of Massachusetts …

Images of the Whirlpool Galaxy Show Value of Infrared Light Observations

This multipanel image show how different wavelengths of light reveal different features of a cosmic object. On the left is a visible light image of the Whirlpool galaxy. NASA / JPL-Caltech Have you ever wondered why sometimes telescopes capture light in the visible spectrum, and other times in infrared? NASA has released these images of the Whirlpool galaxy, located in …

Wireless nanowire lasers absorb infrared light and emit blue light

Enlarge / This article is about lasers (not necessarily those pictured). Some of us are eagerly awaiting the Photonics Revolution, where photons band together to overthrow the tyranny of the electrons. One of the ongoing problems slowing down the revolution is light sources: you need a laser coupled to a circuit that does something. All this has to happen on …

Scientists are discovering a new way to convert visible light into infrared light

Billions of molecular light bulbs driven by invisible infrared photons produce visible light. Picture credits: Melissa Ann Ashley Columbia University researchers, in collaboration with researchers from Harvard, have succeeded in developing a chemical process for converting infrared energy into visible light, which allows harmless radiation to penetrate living tissue and other materials without causing high-intensity light becomes. Their research was …
