In the visible light spectrum, the wavelength of red light ranges from 622 to 780 nanometers. Red light has the longest wavelength and the shortest frequency. Violet light, which has the shortest wavelength, is at the ot... More »

Photosynthesis is most efficient at light wavelengths between 400 and 500 nanometers and 600 to 700 nanometers. The green pigment, chlorophyll, restricts the efficiency of photosynthesis. More »

The wavelengths of the colors of the rainbow range from 390 nanometers to 780 nanometers. There are wavelengths that are lower or higher than those in the visible spectrum, and several types of radiation are simply light... More »

The compound barium chloride burns green at wavelength of 589 nanometers which is in the middle of the visible light spectrum. Color is produced by heating metal salts such as barium chloride, calcium salts or sodium sal... More »

The wavelength of ultraviolet light is 400 nanometers or less. Visible light and color range from 400 nanometers to 750 nanometers. The region just below the visible wavelength is called near ultraviolet. More » Science Physics Optics & Waves

Infrared is energy with a longer wavelength than visible light, existing just outside the range of human vision. The sun is a natural source of infrared energy, as well as many other forms of energy from across the elect... More »
