Sorry, no etymologies found.
Herschel Space Observatory will be the first space observatory covering the full far infrared and sub-millimetre waveband.
The other object is SN 2007gr, which was first detected in August 2007 in the spiral galaxy NGC 1058, some 35 million light-years away it's one of the closest Ic supernovae detected in the radio waveband.
Virtually all branches of astronomy outside the visual waveband went from scratch to today's stunning results in less time than elapsed between the discovery of Saturn's rings and its fourth brightest moon!
If you tried to reproduce this in paint, you would find that as the waveband narrows, the proportion of light relected gets less - i.e. the surface gets darker.
Once the active waveband for melanoma induction is identified, an action spectrum can be constructed.
I mean, "the data" are pixel intensities … representing the flux of electromagnetic radiation detected in the visual waveband!
From the colours, I'd say it's a multi-waveband composite, with the purple x-ray or, perhaps, Fermi gamma.
This neither proves nor disproves whether this waveband is fully saturated by the 0.038% CO2 in the atmosphere.
The blackbody spectrum at 293 K = 70 F peaks at 9.9 um and emits 32% of its total energy in the same waveband.
Of course, for the purpose of encoding specific messages we utilized a multiplexing technique across an entire waveband-but we also used frequency multipliers and pulse-burst transmission.
