What is IR radiation?
Infrared (IR) radiation is an electromagnetic radiation of a wavelength longer than that of visible light, but shorter than that of radio waves (between 750nm and 1mm). Applications include target acquisition and tracking by the military, remote temperature sensing, short-ranged wireless communication, spectroscopy, and weather forecasting.
