Technological advances have allowed us to read this story in the increasingly faint and long-wavelength light coming from the edge of the observable universe.
Among its key points, the LRC notes that "until more is known about the effects of long-wavelength light exposure (amount, spectrum, duration) on circadian disruption, it is inappropriate to single out short-wavelength radiation from In-Ga-N LED sources as a causative factor in modern maladies.
The threshold on the long-wavelength side of the power generation wavelength range of existing dye sensitized solar cells was limited to 800 nanometers, and dye able to absorb near-infrared light enabling the use of long-wavelength light had to be developed.
The simulations suggested that the cells could take in long-wavelength light at the green to orange end of the spectrum but would scatter shorter-wavelength blue and violet light.
The observed sensitivity to both the red and blue/green stimuli suggests that larval photoresponses are the result of either a single photoreceptor spectral class, with an absorbance maximum that lies between the emission peaks of the blue/green (550 nm) and red (630 nm) stimuli, or multiple spectral classes, at least one of which is sensitive to long-wavelength light.
By demonstrating a way to shape x-rays on the femtosecond time scale, we've opened the door to 'quantum control' experiments - now possible only with long-wavelength light - in the x-ray egime," said Glover.
The telescope has an infrared camera which can pick up long-wavelength light that is invisible to the naked eye.
M-, and S-cones, represent classes of photoreceptors that are primarily sensitive to long-wavelength light (L), medium wavelength light (M), and short wavelength light (S) within the visible spectrum.
These three types of cones, L-, M-, and S-cones, represent classes of photoreceptors that are primarily sensitive to long-wavelength light (L), medium wavelength light (M), and short wavelength light (S) within the visible spectrum.
With multi-photon microscopy, any photobleaching that may occur is restricted to the focal plane, and the use of long-wavelength light offers a dramatic improvement in longevity of living cells, tissues, and organisms.
At present, it appears that long-wavelength light at vents is dependent on temperature, which offers some intriguing potential applications.
In nighttime conditions, the human eye is more sensitive to short-wavelength light, which produces 'cool' tones like blue or green, as opposed to long-wavelength light, which produces 'warm' tones like yellow and red," said LRC Director of Energy Programs Peter Morante.
