Parent topics

  • Electromagnetic radiation [r]: a collection of electromagnetic waves, usually of different wavelengths. [e]
  • Electromagnetic wave [r]: A change, periodic in space and time, of an electric field E(r,t) and a magnetic field B(r,t); a stream of electromagnetic waves, referred to as electromagnetic radiation, can be seen as a stream of massless elementary particles, named photons. [e]
  • Light [r]: The part of the electromagnetic spectrum visible to a species' biological eye. [e]
  • Radiation [r]: Transmission of energy through space. [e]

Subtopics

  • Astronomy [r]: The study of objects and processes in the observable universe, e.g. stars, planets, comets or asteroids. [e]
  • Aurora Borealis [r]: Visible light stimulated by the interaction of the solar wind and the upper atmosphere, around the North Magnetic Pole. [e]
  • Infrared light [r]: In physics and engineering, a non-visible portion of the electromagnetic spectrum ranging from wavelengths of 750 nm to 1 mm, between the darkest visible red and the shortest submillimeter wave radar [e]
  • Optics [r]: A field of scientific, technological, and engineering study and application concerned with understanding light, — typically in the visible, ultraviolet, and infrared ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum — and harnessing it for useful tasks. [e]
  • Ultraviolet [r]: The part of the electromagnetic spectrum between the visible light and X-ray regions [e]
