Friday, August 2, 2019 Infrared (IR) is a type of light with a wavelength just beyond the visible spectrum. It is used in many fields, including medicine, astronomy, and military applications. In medicine, infrared radiation is used to provide imaging of the body and to detect cancer, fractures, and other diseases. In astronomy, infrared light is used to study the composition of the universe and to observe distant galaxies. In military applications, infrared can be used for night vision and for target acquisition. In this section, you can find news, articles, and videos about infrared technology and its applications.
A molecular machine activated by near-infrared light eradicates cancer cells and achieves 50% tumor-free survival in mice.
Here, we show a dual-selective radiative cooling design based on a scalable thermal emitter, which exhibits selective emission in both atmospheric transparent windows and reflection in the remaining mid-infrared and solar wavebands, with enhanced radiative cooling performance.
