Latest Infrared Stories
LONDON, March 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- REPORT HIGHLIGHTSThe global market for mid-infrared (MID-IR) lasers in 2013 was worth $475 million.
DALLAS, March 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a new market research report on the "Infrared Imaging Market by Component (IR Lens System, IR Detector, and Other Components),
Astronomers at the University of California, San Diego have broken out a new tool in the search for intelligent extraterrestrial life: an instrument that can scan the sky for pulses of infrared light that may be indicative of messages from advanced civilizations on other worlds.
North American SWIR Market market was valued at $15.97 million in 2014, and is expected to reach $28.23 million by 2019, at a CAGR of 12.07% from 2014 to 2019.
NASA astronomers have for the first time detected an outburst from a star believed to be in the earliest stages of its development – an eruption that they believe reveals a sudden accumulation of gas and dust by an exceptionally young star also known as a protostar.
The growth of the Middle East & Africa IR Detector Market is driven by the rising demand from the military and commercial application segments.
The SWIR market is majorly dominated by temperature measurement, in addition to InGaAs and fire detection applications.
LONDON, March 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SUMMARY This report follows on from NanoMarkets' successful reports on radiation detection equipment and radiation detection materials
Space-based cameras originally designed to combat famine in Africa by monitoring vegetation are being adapted to help detect diseases such as skin cancer, the ESA announced on Friday.
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...
