râdio kahkešân, kahkešân-e râdioyi
A galaxy that is extremely luminous at radio wavelengths between 10 MHz and 100 GHz. The radio luminosity of a strong radio galaxy (1037-1039 watts) can be up to a million times greater than the radio output of an ordinary galaxy and up to a hundred times greater than the optical luminosity of a galaxy such as the Milky Way. The optical counterparts of radio galaxies are usually an → elliptical galaxy. Radio galaxies often exhibit jet structure from a compact nucleus. They typically display two → radio lobes that are often approximately aligned with the jets observed in the optical and that may extend for millions of → light-years.
Fr.: interféromètre radio
An → interferometer designed for radio frequencies.
radio-šân, šân-e râdioyi
Fr.: jet radio
An → astrophysical jet appearing in the radio wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Fr.: lobe radio
An extended region of diffuse radio emission, often dumbbell shaped, that surrounds a radio galaxy.
nufe-ye râdioyi (#)
Fr.: bruit radio
The electromagnetic noise at radio wavelengths.
râdio-tapâr, pulsâr-e râdio-yi
Fr.: pulsar radio
A → pulsar that emits → pulses in → radio waves. The bulk of discovered pulsars are radio pulsars. There is a small number of pulsars that emit at optical wavelengths, X-ray wavelengths, and gamma-ray wavelengths.
radio recombination line
xatt-e bâzmiyâzeš-e râdioyi
Fr.: raie de recombinaison radio
A → recombination line whose wavelength lies in the radio range of the electromagnetic spectrum. Radio recombination lines are the result of electronic transitions between high energy levels (n > 50) in an atom or ion.
Fr.: signal radio
Fr.: silence radio
A condition in which all fixed or mobile equipments capable of radio transmitting in an area are kept inoperative, typically for the duration of some sensitive time period. The term has both military and civilian applications.
râdio-xan, xan-e râdioyi
Fr.: radio source, source radio
A point or small portion of the sky giving stronger radio emission than the sky in its vicinity.
Fr.: spectre radio
râdio setâré, setâre-ye râdioyi
Fr.: étoile radio
A star which is a source of emission at radio frequencies. Radio stars include pulsars, flare stars, binary star systems in which mass is transferred from one component to the other, and some X-ray stars.
tufân-e radioyi (#)
Fr.: orage radio
Strong radio frequency radiation from the Sun, occurring in association with eruptions of solar flares or other causes of solar activity.
xoršid-e râdioyi (#)
Fr.: Soleil radio
The image of the Sun obtained from its electromagnetic radiation in radio frequencies. The apparent size of the radio Sun depends of the frequency of the signal, since different radio frequencies originate from various atmospheric layers of the Sun.
Fr.: relevé radio
râdio-teleskop (#), teleskop-e râdioyi (#)
Fr.: radio télescope
A telescope whose receiver is sensitive to → radio waves.
mowj-e râdioyi (#)
Fr.: ondes radio
The → electromagnetic radiation with the longest → wavelengths (and lowest energies), ranging from 0.3 mm to several km. Radio waves form a very broad category, which includes the → submillimeter waves (with a wavelength of 0.3-1 mm) and → microwave regions (1 mm to several cm).
Fr.: longueur d'onde radio
rowzane-ye râdioyi (#)
Fr.: fenêtre radio
A range of electromagnetic radiation in the radio frequencies to which the Earth's atmosphere is transparent.
kuâsâr-e râdioyi-ye xorušân
Fr.: quasar puissant en radio
A quasar that has the same characteristics as a → radio-quiet quasar with the addition of having strong radio emissions.
