Even the units in which the light is measured are different: radio is measured in Hertz, infrared in microns, optical in angstroms, X-ray in kiloelectron volts.
The energies IBEX has observed range from 0.2 to 6.0 kiloelectron volts, and the scientists said its flux is two to three times greater than the ENA activity throughout the rest of the heliosphere.
Usually, they are thought of as any photons having energies greater than about 100 keV kiloelectron volts.
Operating with 8 keV (kiloelectron volt) X-rays, it enables observation of structures and materials in their natural state.
