      Infrared Astronomy [image] In , Sir William Herschel discovered an invisible form of radiation just beyond the red portion of the visible spectrum. He named this form of radiation infrared ("below" red). Herschel's discovery was the first step in establishing what we now call the electromagnetic spectrum. Michael J. Kristo, in Handbook of Radioactivity Analysis (Third Edition), c Infrared Spectroscopy. Infrared Spectroscopy (IR) is useful for the identification of organic compounds. Through the use of a specialized microscope, IR can be performed on samples as small as 10 μm and is an important microanalytical technique. Molecular bonds vibrate at characteristic frequencies.

    Infrared astronomy can not only allow us to discover new objects and view previously unseen areas of the universe, but it can add to what we already know about visible objects. To get a complete picture of any object in the Universe we need to study all of the radiation that it emits. Infrared astronomy is on the threshold of a revolution. The decade of the 's presents an unparalleled opportunity to address fundamental astrophysics issues through observations at infrared wavelengths (1 µm to µm) made possible by enormous technological and .

    The new search for alien intelligence Hunting for ET now involves Dyson spheres, infrared signals, and laser communications. It's definitely not your father's method for locating cosmic intelligence. Odenwald has worked as part of the NASA Cosmic Background Explorer, Diffuse Infrared Background Experiment investigating the cosmic infrared background. He has published four books: The Astronomy Cafe, The 23rd Cycle, Patterns in the Void and Back to the Astronomy Cafe. He has also appeared in a number of TV and radio documentaries on astronomy Alma mater: University of California, Berkeley, Harvard .

Infrared Astronomy with Arrays: the Next Generation. [Ian S McLean] -- This book reveals the remarkable revolution which has occurred in infrared astronomy in recent years as the result of technology breakthroughs in the development and availability of tiny imaging.

Infrared astronomy is a dynamic area of current research. It has been revolutionized in the past few years by the advent of large, sensitive, infrared arrays, and the success of several infrared satellites. This handbook provides a clear, concise and accessible reference on all aspects of infrared by:   Now infrared astronomy is part of the armoury of the modern astronomer interested in anything from the origins of the universe to the disposition of water and other molecules in interstellar space.

Notable successes have come from instruments such as UKIRT, IRAS and ISO, and much is expected in the future from Gemini, the Next Generation Space Telescope, FIRST and Planck, among Cited by: 3.

"More Things in the Heavens reveals how important infrared astronomy has been to increasing our understanding of the cosmos." —Iain Todd, BBC Sky at Night "For serious space fans, this ode to NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope reveals what we’ve learned by looking at the universe through an infrared.

These are just a few of the questions that can now be addressed in a new era of infrared observations. IR astronomy has been revolutionised over the past few years by the widespread availability of large, very sensitive IR arrays and the success of IR satellites (IRAS in particular).

Infrared astronomy originated in the early s with the work of the British astronomer Sir William Herschel, who discovered the existence of infrared radiation while studying first systematic infrared observations of stellar objects were made by the American astronomers W.W.
