This infrared space telescope image has (false color) blue, green and red corresponding to 3.4 4.6, and 12 wavelengths, respectively. Infrared radiation, or simply infrared or IR, is (EMR) with longer than those of, and is therefore invisible, although it is sometimes loosely called infrared light. It extends from the nominal edge of the at 700 ( 430 ), to 1 (300 ) (although specially pulsed lasers can allow humans to detect IR radiation up to 1050 nm. Most of the emitted by objects near room temperature is infrared.
Like all EMR, IR carries, and behaves like a wave and like its particle, the. Infrared was discovered in 1800 by astronomer Sir, who discovered a type of invisible radiation in the spectrum lower in energy than red light, by means of its effect on a thermometer. Slightly more than half of the total energy from the Sun was eventually found to arrive on Earth in the form of infrared. The balance between absorbed and emitted infrared radiation has a critical effect on Earth's.

Infrared radiation is emitted or absorbed by when they change their movements. It excites modes in a through a change in the, making it a useful frequency range for study of these energy states for molecules of the proper symmetry. Examines absorption and transmission of in the infrared range. Infrared radiation is used in industrial, scientific, and medical applications.
Night-vision devices using active near-infrared illumination allow people or animals to be observed without the observer being detected. Uses sensor-equipped to penetrate dusty regions of space such as, detect objects such as, and to view highly objects from the early days of the. Infrared thermal-imaging cameras are used to detect heat loss in insulated systems, to observe changing blood flow in the skin, and to detect overheating of electrical apparatus.
Thermal-infrared imaging is used extensively for military and civilian purposes. Military applications include, surveillance,, homing, and tracking. Humans at normal body temperature radiate chiefly at wavelengths around 10 μm (micrometers). Non-military uses include analysis, environmental monitoring, industrial facility inspections, remote temperature sensing, short-ranged,, and.

At zenith, sunlight provides an of just over 1 per square meter at sea level.
Of this energy, 527 watts is infrared radiation, 445 watts is, and 32 watts is radiation. Nearly all the infrared radiation in sunlight is near infrared, shorter than 4 micrometers.
On the surface of Earth, at far lower temperatures than the surface of the Sun, almost all thermal radiation consists of infrared in mid-infrared region, much longer than in sunlight. Of these natural thermal radiation processes only lightning and natural fires are hot enough to produce much visible energy, and fires produce far more infrared than visible-light energy. Regions within the infrared [ ] In general, objects emit infrared radiation across a spectrum of wavelengths, but sometimes only a limited region of the spectrum is of interest because sensors usually collect radiation only within a specific bandwidth. Thermal infrared radiation also has a maximum emission wavelength, which is inversely proportional to the absolute temperature of object, in accordance with. Therefore, the infrared band is often subdivided into smaller sections. Commonly used sub-division scheme [ ] A commonly used sub-division scheme is: Division Name Abbreviation Wavelength Frequency Photon Energy Temperature† Characteristics Near-infrared NIR, IR-A 0.75–1.4 214–400 886–1653 3,864–2,070 (3,591–1,797 ) Defined by the water absorption, [ ] and commonly used in telecommunication because of low attenuation losses in the SiO 2 glass () medium. Are sensitive to this area of the spectrum; examples include devices such as night vision goggles.
Is another common application. Short-wavelength infrared SWIR, IR-B DIN 1.4–3 µm 100–214 THz 413–886 meV 2,070–966 (1,797–693 ) Water absorption increases significantly at 1450 nm. The 1530 to 1560 nm range is the dominant spectral region for long-distance telecommunications. Mid-wavelength infrared MWIR, IR-C DIN; MidIR.
Also called intermediate infrared (IIR) 3–8 µm 37–100 THz 155–413 meV 966–362 (693–89 ) In guided missile technology the 3–5 µm portion of this band is the atmospheric window in which the homing heads of passive IR 'heat seeking' missiles are designed to work, homing on to the of the target aircraft, typically the jet engine exhaust plume. This region is also known as thermal infrared. Long-wavelength infrared LWIR, IR-C DIN 8–15 µm 20–37 THz 83–155 meV 362–193 (89 – −80 ) The 'thermal imaging' region, in which sensors can obtain a completely passive image of objects only slightly higher in temperature than room temperature - for example, the human body - based on thermal emissions only and requiring no illumination such as the sun, moon, or infrared illuminator. This region is also called the 'thermal infrared'. FIR 15–1000 µm 0.3–20 THz 1.2–83 meV 193–3 (−80.15 – −270.15 ) (see also and ) † Temperatures of black bodies for which spectral peaks fall at the given wavelengths, according to.
A comparison of a thermal image (top) and an ordinary photograph (bottom) shows that a trash bag is transparent but glass (the man's spectacles) is opaque in long-wavelength infrared. NIR and SWIR is sometimes called 'reflected infrared', whereas MWIR and LWIR is sometimes referred to as 'thermal infrared'. Due to the nature of the blackbody radiation curves, typical 'hot' objects, such as exhaust pipes, often appear brighter in the MW compared to the same object viewed in the LW. Plot of atmospheric transmittance in part of the infrared region. A third scheme divides up the band based on the response of various detectors: • Near-infrared: from 0.7 to 1.0 µm (from the approximate end of the response of the to that of silicon). • Short-wave infrared: 1.0 to 3 µm (from the cut-off of silicon to that of the MWIR atmospheric window). InGaAs covers to about 1.8 µm; the less sensitive lead salts cover this region.
• Mid-wave infrared: 3 to 5 µm (defined by the atmospheric window and covered by [InSb] and and partially by [PbSe]). • Long-wave infrared: 8 to 12, or 7 to 14 µm (this is the atmospheric window covered by HgCdTe and ). • Very-long wave infrared (VLWIR) (12 to about 30 µm, covered by doped silicon). Near-infrared is the region closest in wavelength to the radiation detectable by the. Mid- and are progressively further from the. Other definitions follow different physical mechanisms (emission peaks, vs. Bands, water absorption) and the newest follow technical reasons (the common detectors are sensitive to about 1,050 nm, while 's sensitivity starts around 950 nm and ends between 1,700 and 2,600 nm, depending on the specific configuration).
No international standards for these specifications are currently available. The onset of infrared is defined (according to different standards) at various values typically between 700 nm and 800 nm, but the boundary between visible and infrared light is not precisely defined. The human eye is markedly less sensitive to light above 700 nm wavelength, so longer wavelengths make insignificant contributions to scenes illuminated by common light sources. However, particularly intense near-IR light (e.g., from IR, IR LED sources, or from bright daylight with the visible light removed by colored gels) can be detected up to approximately 780 nm, and will be perceived as red light. Intense light sources providing wavelengths as long as 1050 nm can be seen as a dull red glow, causing some difficulty in near-IR illumination of scenes in the dark (usually this practical problem is solved by indirect illumination).
Leaves are particularly bright in the near IR, and if all visible light leaks from around an IR-filter are blocked, and the eye is given a moment to adjust to the extremely dim image coming through a visually opaque IR-passing photographic filter, it is possible to see the that consists of IR-glowing foliage. Telecommunication bands in the infrared [ ] In, the part of the infrared spectrum that is used is divided into seven bands based on availability of light sources transmitting/absorbing materials (fibers) and detectors: Band Descriptor Wavelength range O band Original 1260–1360 nm E band Extended 1360–1460 nm S band Short wavelength 1460–1530 nm Conventional 1530–1565 nm L band Long wavelength 1565–1625 nm U band Ultralong wavelength 1625–1675 nm The C-band is the dominant band for long-distance networks. The S and L bands are based on less well established technology, and are not as widely deployed. Materials with higher appear to be hotter. In this thermal image, the ceramic cylinder appears to be hotter than its cubic container (made of silicon carbide), while in fact they have the same temperature. Infrared radiation is popularly known as 'heat radiation' [ ], but light and electromagnetic waves of any frequency will heat surfaces that absorb them.
Infrared light from the Sun accounts for 49% of the heating of Earth, with the rest being caused by visible light that is absorbed then re-radiated at longer wavelengths. Visible light or -emitting can char paper and incandescently hot objects emit visible radiation. Objects at room will concentrated mostly in the 8 to 25 µm band, but this is not distinct from the emission of visible light by incandescent objects and ultraviolet by even hotter objects (see and ). Is energy in transit that flows due to temperature difference. Unlike heat transmitted by or, thermal radiation can propagate through a. Thermal radiation is characterized by a particular spectrum of many wavelengths that is associated with emission from an object, due to the vibration of its molecules at a given temperature. Thermal radiation can be emitted from objects at any wavelength, and at very high temperatures such radiations are associated with spectra far above the infrared, extending into visible, ultraviolet, and even X-ray regions (e.g.
Thus, the popular association of infrared radiation with thermal radiation is only a coincidence based on typical (comparatively low) temperatures often found near the surface of planet Earth. The concept of is important in understanding the infrared emissions of objects. This is a property of a surface that describes how its thermal emissions deviate from the ideal of a. To further explain, two objects at the same physical temperature will not show the same infrared image if they have differing emissivity.
For example, for any pre-set emissivity value, objects with higher emissivity will appear hotter, and those with a lower emissivity will appear cooler. For that reason, incorrect selection of emissivity will give inaccurate results when using infrared cameras and pyrometers. Applications [ ]. Active-infrared night vision: the camera illuminates the scene at infrared wavelengths invisible to the.
Despite a dark back-lit scene, active-infrared night vision delivers identifying details, as seen on the display monitor. Infrared is used in night vision equipment when there is insufficient to see. Operate through a process involving the conversion of ambient light photons into electrons that are then amplified by a chemical and electrical process and then converted back into visible light.
Infrared light sources can be used to augment the available ambient light for conversion by night vision devices, increasing in-the-dark visibility without actually using a visible light source. The use of infrared light and night vision devices should not be confused with, which creates images based on differences in surface temperature by detecting infrared radiation () that emanates from objects and their surrounding environment. Thermography [ ]. Main article: Infrared radiation can be used to remotely determine the temperature of objects (if the emissivity is known).
This is termed thermography, or in the case of very hot objects in the NIR or visible it is termed. Thermography (thermal imaging) is mainly used in military and industrial applications but the technology is reaching the public market in the form of infrared cameras on cars due to the massively reduced production costs. Detect radiation in the infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum (roughly 900–14,000 nanometers or 0.9–14 μm) and produce images of that radiation. Since infrared radiation is emitted by all objects based on their temperatures, according to the radiation law, thermography makes it possible to 'see' one's environment with or without visible illumination.
The amount of radiation emitted by an object increases with temperature, therefore thermography allows one to see variations in temperature (hence the name). Hyperspectral imaging [ ]. Infrared light from the of a as recorded by a digital camera. A hyperspectral image is a 'picture' containing continuous through a wide spectral range at each pixel. Hyperspectral imaging is gaining importance in the field of applied spectroscopy particularly with NIR, SWIR, MWIR, and LWIR spectral regions. Typical applications include biological, mineralogical, defence, and industrial measurements.
Thermal infrared hyperspectral imaging can be similarly performed using a, with the fundamental difference that each pixel contains a full LWIR spectrum. Consequently, chemical identification of the object can be performed without a need for an external light source such as the sun or the moon. Such cameras are typically applied for geological measurements, outdoor surveillance and applications. Other imaging [ ] In, are used to capture the near-infrared spectrum.
Often use infrared. Cheaper digital cameras and have less effective filters and can 'see' intense near-infrared, appearing as a bright purple-white color. This is especially pronounced when taking pictures of subjects near IR-bright areas (such as near a lamp), where the resulting infrared interference can wash out the image.
There is also a technique called ' imaging, which is imaging using. Lack of bright sources can make terahertz photography more challenging than most other infrared imaging techniques.
Recently T-ray imaging has been of considerable interest due to a number of new developments such as. Main article: Infrared tracking, also known as infrared homing, refers to a, which uses the from a target of in the infrared part of the to track it.
Missiles that use infrared seeking are often referred to as 'heat-seekers', since infrared (IR) is just below the visible spectrum of light in frequency and is radiated strongly by hot bodies. Many objects such as people, vehicle engines, and aircraft generate and retain heat, and as such, are especially visible in the infrared wavelengths of light compared to objects in the background. This section does not any. Unsourced material may be challenged and. (November 2013) () Infrared radiation can be used as a deliberate heating source. For example, it is used in infrared saunas to heat the occupants. It may also be used in other heating applications, such as to remove ice from the wings of aircraft (de-icing).
Infrared can be used in cooking and heating food as it predominantly heats the opaque, absorbent objects, rather than the air around them. Infrared heating is also becoming more popular in industrial manufacturing processes, e.g. Curing of coatings, forming of plastics, annealing, plastic welding, and print drying. In these applications, infrared heaters replace convection ovens and contact heating.
Efficiency is achieved by matching the wavelength of the infrared heater to the absorption characteristics of the material. Main article: A variety of technologies or proposed technologies take advantage of infrared emissions to cool buildings or other systems. The LWIR (8–15 µm) region is especially useful since some radiation at these wavelengths can escape into space through the atmosphere. Communications [ ] IR data transmission is also employed in short-range communication among computer peripherals and. These devices usually conform to standards published by, the Infrared Data Association. Remote controls and IrDA devices use infrared (LEDs) to emit infrared radiation that is focused by a plastic into a narrow beam.
The beam is, i.e. Switched on and off, to prevent interference from other sources of infrared (like sunlight or artificial lighting).
The receiver uses a to convert the infrared radiation to an. It responds only to the rapidly pulsing signal created by the transmitter, and filters out slowly changing infrared radiation from ambient light. Infrared communications are useful for indoor use in areas of high population density. IR does not penetrate walls and so does not interfere with other devices in adjoining rooms. Infrared is the most common way for to command appliances.
Infrared remote control protocols like,, are used to communicate with infrared. Using infrared can be a relatively inexpensive way to install a communications link in an urban area operating at up to 4 gigabit/s, compared to the cost of burying fiber optic cable, except for the radiation damage. 'Since the eye cannot detect IR, blinking or closing the eyes to help prevent or reduce damage may not happen.'
Infrared lasers are used to provide the light for communications systems. Infrared light with a wavelength around 1,330 nm (least ) or 1,550 nm (best transmission) are the best choices for standard fibers. IR data transmission of encoded audio versions of printed signs is being researched as an aid for visually impaired people through the project. Transmitting IR data from one device to another is sometimes referred to as. Spectroscopy [ ] (see also ) is a technique that can be used to identify molecules by analysis of their constituent bonds.
Each chemical bond in a molecule vibrates at a frequency characteristic of that bond. A group of atoms in a molecule (e.g., CH 2) may have multiple modes of oscillation caused by the stretching and bending motions of the group as a whole. If an oscillation leads to a change in in the molecule then it will absorb a that has the same frequency.
The vibrational frequencies of most molecules correspond to the frequencies of infrared light. Typically, the technique is used to study using light radiation from 4000–400 cm −1, the mid-infrared. A spectrum of all the frequencies of absorption in a sample is recorded. This can be used to gain information about the sample composition in terms of chemical groups present and also its purity (for example, a wet sample will show a broad O-H absorption around 3200 cm −1). Thin film metrology [ ] In the semiconductor industry, infrared light can be used to characterize materials such as thin films and periodic trench structures. By measuring the reflectance of light from the surface of a semiconductor wafer, the index of refraction (n) and the extinction Coefficient (k) can be determined via the. The reflectance from the infrared light can also be used to determine the critical dimension, depth, and sidewall angle of high aspect ratio trench structures.
Meteorology [ ]. IR Satellite picture taken 1315 Z on 15th October 2006. A system can be seen in the with embedded Cumulonimbus cloud. Shallower Cumulus and Stratocumulus can be seen off the. Equipped with scanning radiometers produce thermal or infrared images, which can then enable a trained analyst to determine cloud heights and types, to calculate land and surface water temperatures, and to locate ocean surface features. The scanning is typically in the range 10.3–12.5 µm (IR4 and IR5 channels). High, cold ice clouds such as or show up bright white, lower warmer clouds such as or show up as grey with intermediate clouds shaded accordingly.
Hot land surfaces will show up as dark-grey or black. One disadvantage of infrared imagery is that low cloud such as stratus or can be a similar temperature to the surrounding land or sea surface and does not show up. However, using the difference in brightness of the IR4 channel (10.3–11.5 µm) and the near-infrared channel (1.58–1.64 µm), low cloud can be distinguished, producing a fog satellite picture. The main advantage of infrared is that images can be produced at night, allowing a continuous sequence of weather to be studied. These infrared pictures can depict ocean eddies or vortices and map currents such as the Gulf Stream, which are valuable to the shipping industry. Fishermen and farmers are interested in knowing land and water temperatures to protect their crops against frost or increase their catch from the sea. Even phenomena can be spotted.
Using color-digitized techniques, the gray-shaded thermal images can be converted to color for easier identification of desired information. The main water vapour channel at 6.40 to 7.08 µm can be imaged by some weather satellites and shows the amount of moisture in the atmosphere.
With its planet Beta Pictoris b, the light-blue dot off-center, as seen in infrared. It combines two images, the inner disc is at 3.6 µm. Astronomers observe objects in the infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum using optical components, including mirrors, lenses and solid state digital detectors. For this reason it is classified as part of.
To form an image, the components of an infrared telescope need to be carefully shielded from heat sources, and the detectors are chilled using liquid. The sensitivity of Earth-based infrared telescopes is significantly limited by water vapor in the atmosphere, which absorbs a portion of the infrared radiation arriving from space outside of selected. This limitation can be partially alleviated by placing the telescope observatory at a high altitude, or by carrying the telescope aloft with a balloon or an aircraft. Space telescopes do not suffer from this handicap, and so outer space is considered the ideal location for infrared astronomy.
The infrared portion of the spectrum has several useful benefits for astronomers. Cold, dark of gas and dust in our galaxy will glow with radiated heat as they are irradiated by imbedded stars. Infrared can also be used to detect before they begin to emit visible light. Stars emit a smaller portion of their energy in the infrared spectrum, so nearby cool objects such as can be more readily detected. (In the visible light spectrum, the glare from the star will drown out the reflected light from a planet.) Infrared light is also useful for observing the cores of, which are often cloaked in gas and dust. Distant galaxies with a high will have the peak portion of their spectrum shifted toward longer wavelengths, so they are more readily observed in the infrared.
Infrared cleaning [ ] is a technique used by some, and to reduce or remove the effect of dust and scratches upon the finished. It works by collecting an additional infrared channel from the scan at the same position and resolution as the three visible color channels (red, green, and blue).
The infrared channel, in combination with the other channels, is used to detect the location of scratches and dust. Once located, those defects can be corrected by scaling or replaced. Art conservation and analysis [ ]. (;; ), as called by art conservators, can be applied to paintings to reveal underlying layers in a completely non-destructive manner, in particular the or outline drawn by the artist as a guide. This often reveals the artist's use of, which shows up well in reflectograms, as long as it has not also been used in the ground underlying the whole painting. Art conservators are looking to see whether the visible layers of paint differ from the underdrawing or layers in between – such alterations are called when made by the original artist. This is very useful information in deciding whether a painting is the by the original artist or a copy, and whether it has been altered by over-enthusiastic restoration work.
In general, the more pentimenti the more likely a painting is to be the prime version. It also gives useful insights into working practices.
Among many other changes in the of 1434 (left), the man's face was originally higher by about the height of his eye; the woman's was higher, and her eyes looked more to the front. Each of his feet was underdrawn in one position, painted in another, and then overpainted in a third. These alterations are seen in infrared reflectograms. Recent progress in the design of infrared sensitive cameras made it possible to discover and depict not only underpaintings and pentimenti but entire paintings which were later overpainted by the artist. Notable examples are 's ' and ', where in both cases, a portrait of a man has been made visible under the painting as it is known today.
Similar uses of infrared are made by conservators and scientists on various types of objects, especially very old written documents such as the, the Roman works in the, and the Silk Road texts found in the. Carbon black used in ink can show up extremely well. Biological systems [ ]. Thermographic image of a snake eating a mouse The has a pair of infrared sensory pits on its head.
There is uncertainty regarding the exact thermal sensitivity of this biological infrared detection system. Other organisms that have thermoreceptive organs are pythons (family ), some boas (family ), the ( Desmodus rotundus), a variety of ( ), darkly pigmented butterflies ( and ), and possibly blood-sucking bugs ( ). Although near-infrared vision (780–1000 nm) has long been deemed impossible due to noise in visual pigments, sensation of near-infrared light was reported in the common carp and in three cichlid species.
Fish use NIR to capture prey and for phototactic swimming orientation. NIR sensation in fish may be relevant under poor lighting conditions during twilight and in turbid surface waters. Photobiomodulation [ ] Near-infrared light, or, is used for treatment of chemotherapy-induced oral ulceration as well as wound healing.
There is some work relating to anti-herpes virus treatment. Research projects include work on central nervous system healing effects via cytochrome c oxidase upregulation and other possible mechanisms. Health hazard [ ] Strong infrared radiation in certain industry high-heat settings may be hazardous to the eyes, resulting in damage or blindness to the user.
Since the radiation is invisible, special IR-proof goggles must be worn in such places. History of infrared science [ ]. This section needs additional citations for. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. (July 2006) () The discovery of infrared radiation is ascribed to, the, in the early 19th century.
Herschel published his results in 1800 before the. Herschel used a to light from the and detected the infrared, beyond the part of the spectrum, through an increase in the temperature recorded on a. He was surprised at the result and called them 'Calorific Rays'.
The term 'Infrared' did not appear until late in the 19th century. Other important dates include.
Yes, after eight years of work, this long-in-the-making fan dub is finally done and released. The text translation patch was done years ago, but understandably, getting together a voices patch was much more difficult. Sounds like it was quite the project. It was necessary in order to actually understand the whole story, though; TGCD cutscenes don't usually have subtitles.
And so, they put in the work, and the result is that now anyone can play the whole game, in English, and actually understand the whole story, including the previously Japanese-only voices. Just awesome, awesome work.
Go to the link above for the download. Youtube trailer they also posted: For anyone who doesn't know, Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys is a top-down action-RPG game by Hudson released in late 1993 only in Japan for the PC Engine Super CD (aka TurboGrafx Super CD in the US).
The game plays a lot like Ys 1+2. As a Super CD game it requires the Super System Card in original Turbo CD systems. The game is an entirely different game from Falcom's Ys IV: Mask of the Sun for the Super Nintendo (which is also a Japan-only release).
That game is also a top-down action-RPG, but it's a completely different one. Mask of the Sun has also Japanese-only PS2 and cellphone re-releases, and The Dawn of Ys is on the PS3 PSN in Japan, but neither game has ever had a Western release, unfortunately. Hopefully that changes someday, but in the interim, this is pretty awesome.
And of course, it's easy to use a real disc copy of the game as the base for the text and now voice mods. Originally Posted by Aeana I'm glad to see it's finally done, since the game was previously left in a kind of weird state for English-only speakers, since the voiced parts didn't have translated subtitles in the translation patch.Yeah, that's why I'm hoping that someone will tackle Xak III (for Turbo CD) next -- that one also has a text-only translation patch which leaves the cutscenes in Japanese-only. The quality of the performances seems to vary going by the trailer, but I'm sure it beats not being able to understand the voices at all!Yeah, that's for sure. I'll take mixed-quality voice acting over nothing any day!

This might bode well for the Legend of Xanadu 2 fansub/dub.I presume that they're doing a text translation too? Because that one doesn't have a text translation, of the TGCD (action-)RPGs only Ys IV and Xak III have that.

The Vita game is Falcom finally going back and making their own 'true' Ys IV.Falcom was originally working with Sega on the MegaDrive (then MegaCD) Ys IV iirc. It was canceled though. They used to claim Mask of the Sun was the canon Ys IV, dunno if that's changed now with Foliage Ocean (lol) in Celceta.
