DUBLIN, May 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2lw8mr/ir_detector)
The key factors propelling the growth of Molecular Spectroscopy Market are increased investments, funding, and grants by government bodies worldwide -
Dark alleys might not feel so dangerous someday thanks to a new ultra-thin type of lens, which could pave the way to making smaller and cheaper heat-sensing imagers.
Most of us have gotten used to being connected no matter where we go, but if mankind ever starts living or working on the moon or some far-off asteroid, how would they be able to check their email or post killer selfies on Facebook?
Astronomers have found cosmic clumps so dark, dense and dusty that they throw the deepest shadows ever recorded.
Catching glimpses of early stars is one of the things that the Near Infrared Camera or NIRCam will do when it flies aboard the James Webb Space Telescope.
There are objects we cannot see within the range of the visible but which we can with imaging systems that use the terahertz (THz) wavelength.
A device that essentially listens for light waves could help open up the last frontier of the electromagnetic spectrum—the terahertz range.
Star Formation -- Star formation is the process by which gas in molecular clouds gets transformed into stars. In the current paradigm of star formation, cores of molecular clouds (regions of specially high density) became gravitationally unstable, and start to concentrate. Part of the gravitational energy lost in the process is radiated in the infrared, another part increases the temperature of the core. The accretion of material happen partially though a circumstellar disc. When...
Electromagnetic Spectrum -- The electromagnetic spectrum describes the various types of electromagnetic radiation based on their wavelengths. Radio, representing wavelengths from a few feet to well over a mile, is at one end of the spectrum. Gamma ray radiation is at the other end: the wavelength of the harder types is so short, in the subatomic range, that we do not have instruments capable of directly measuring it. While the above classification scheme is generally accurate, in...
