Variability of blazar 3C 273 examined by astronomers

Using data from space observatories and ground-based telescopes, astronomers have investigated variability of a blazar known as 3C 273. The new study, presented in a paper published July 6 on the arXiv pre-print server, sheds ...

Quasi-periodic variability observed in two blazars

An international team of astronomers reports the detection of quasi-periodic variability in optical and gamma-ray light curves of two blazars, namely 3C 66A and B2 1633+38. The discovery could be helpful in advancing our ...

Mrk 1498 hosts a young and obscured AGN, study finds

An international team of astronomers has found that the giant radio galaxy (GRG) Mrk 1498 has a more complex nuclear structure than previously thought. By analyzing multi-wavelength observations of Mrk 1498, a young and obscured ...

Natural spectral lines

Certain ranges of frequency across the electromagnetic spectrum are reserved by regulators for particular applications: TV, digital radio, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth etc. Unregulated devices are precluded from broadcasting on these ...

Forecasting the hunt for the first supermassive black holes

It is believed that the formation and growth of most galaxies across the history of the universe has been fueled by supermassive black holes growing together with their host galaxy as they collect matter to attain millions ...

Radio spectrum

A range of Radio frequencies that defines allowable or usable channels for specific radio transmission technologies. Radio Spectrum is typically Government regulated in most developed countries and in some cases sold or licensed to operators of private radio transmission systems. (e.g. Cellular telephone operators or Broadcast Television Stations). The range of allocated frequencies are often referred to by the provisioned use. (e.g. Cellular Telephone Spectrum or Broadcast Television Spectrum)

The range of frequencies classified as Radio Spectrum are part of the overall Electromagnetic spectrum comprised of transmissions of a very wide range in frequencies. For reference, Radio spectrum is below or lower in frequency than Infrared spectrum or visible frequencies, also known as light. (see Visible spectrum)
