near infrared

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Infrared radiation which has a wavelength between 0.7μm and 2.5μm. Near-infrared is subdivided into very-near infrared (0.7μm–1μm) and short-wave infrared (1.0μm–2.5μm). Photographic films respond to wavelengths between 0.7 μm and 1.0 μm, hence very-near infrared is also known as photographic infrared.
