Researchers from the University of Houston have reported a new technique to determine the chemical composition of materials using near-infrared light.
A team of scientists from the University of Exeter have created a new type of device that could be used to develop cost-effective gas sensors.
Laser physicists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics developed a measuring system for light waves in the near-infrared range.
Astronomers are finding dozens of the fastest stars in our galaxy with the help of images from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE.
The Stephan's Quintet of galaxies was discovered by astronomer Édouard Stephan in 1877. At the time, however, he reported the discovery of 'new nebulae', as the concept of other galaxies beyond our Milky Way was only formalised ...
A new, onion-like nanoparticle could open new frontiers in biomaging, solar energy harvesting and light-based security techniques.
Researchers have devised a technology that can bring true color to infrared imaging systems, like the one used to track Arnold Schwarzenegger through the jungle in the movie "Predator."
Salmon migrating from the open ocean to inland waters do more than swim upstream. To navigate the murkier freshwater streams and reach a spot to spawn, the fish have evolved a means to enhance their ability to see infrared ...
