infrared galaxy
  کهکشان ِ فروسرخ

Fr.: galaxie infrarouge   

A galaxy that emits most of its energy in the infrared region of the spectrum. Such galaxies are thought to have unusually high rates of star formation and are also described as → starburst galaxies.

Fr.: imagerie infrarouge   

Imaging with an infrared detector.

infrared; → imaging.

infrared radiation
  تابش ِ فروسرخ   
tâbeš-e forusorx (#)

Fr.: rayonnement infrarouge   

That part of the → electromagnetic radiation lying beyond the red, between the radio and the visible regions of the → electromagnetic spectrum. The wavelengths range from about 0.8 → microns (μm) to about 1000 μm. See also: → near-infrared; → mid-infrared; → far-infrared; → submillimeter radiation.

infrared; → radiation.

Infrared Space Observatory (ISO)
  نپاهشگاه ِ فضایی ِ فروسرخ   
nepâhešgâh-e fazâyi-ye forusorx

Fr.: Satellite ISO   

A European Space Agency satellite which carried the most sensitive infrared telescope ever launched. It operated between November 1995 and April 1998 and made particularly important observations of the dusty regions of the Universe. ISO was equipped with four science instruments: an infrared camera (CAM), a long-wavelength spectrometer (LWS), a photo-polarimeter (PHT), and a short-wavelength spectrometer (SWS). The instruments jointly covered wavelengths from 2.5 to around 240 microns with spatial resolutions ranging from 1.5 arcseconds to 90 arcseconds. Its 60 cm diameter telescope was cooled by superfluid liquid helium to temperatures of 2-4 K. The mission was a great technical, operational and scientific success. During its routine operational phase, ISO successfully made some 30,000 individual imaging, photometric, spectroscopic, and polarimetric observations ranging from objects in our own solar system to the most distant extragalactic sources.

infrared; → space; → observatory.

infrared survey
  بردید ِ فروسرخ   
bardid-e forusorx

Fr.: relevé infrarouge   

Observing a large area of sky (or the whole sky) in infrared wavelengths.

infrared; → survey.

infrared telescope
  دوربین ِ فروسرخ، تلسکوپ ِ ~   
durbin-e forusorx (#), teleskop-e ~ (#)

Fr.: télescope infrarouge   

A telescope capable of observing → infrared radiation from astronomical objects.

infrared; → telescope.

infrared window
  روزنه‌ی ِ فروسرخ   
rowzane-ye forusorx (#)

Fr.: fenêtre infrarouge   

A range of infrared wavelengths to which the Earth's atmosphere is relatively transparent, and at which observations can be made from the ground. Infrared windows are found near wavelengths of 1.25, 1.65, 2.2, 3.6, 5.0, 10, 20, and 30 microns, and beyond 300 microns.

infrared; → window.

ingredient
  درانه   
darâné

Fr.: ingrédient   

That which enters into a → compound or → mixture.

M.E., from L. ingredient- (nominative ingrediens) "that which enters into," p.p. of ingredi "to go in, enter," from → in- + gradi "to go, to walk," → egress.

Darâné, literally "brought into," from dar-, → in-, + ân present stem of ânidan "to bring, to lead," → relate, + nuance suffix .

intermediate infrared
  فروسرخ ِ میانی   
forusorx-e miyâni (#)

Fr.: infrarouge moyen   

The infrared radiation with wavelengths between about 1.5 and 20 microns. → near infrared; → far infrared.

intermediate; → infrared.

interstellar reddening
  سُرخش ِ اندر-اختری   
sorxeš-e andaraxtari

Fr.: rougissement interstellaire   

The dimming of light during its travel in the → interstellar medium due to absorption by → intervening → dust grains. Since shorter wavelengths are particularly affected, the spectrum of the light is increasingly dominated by the long wavelength end of the spectrum. As a result, the light is "reddened" as it travels through space. Robert J. Trumpler (1886-1956), a Swiss-American astronomer, was the first to produce a definite evidence of the existence of → interstellar extinction and to estimate its magnitude (1930).

interstellar; → reddening.

interstellar reddening curve
  خم ِ سُرخش ِ اندر-اختری   
xam-e sorxeš-e andaraxtari

Fr.: courbe de rougissement interstellaire   

A graph showing the relation between → interstellar absorption (in magnitudes) and wavelength.

interstellar; → reddening; → curve.

  که‌سرخ‌کیب   
keh sorxkib

Fr.: faible décalage vers le rouge

  کهکشان ِ فروسرخ ِ تابان   
kahkešân-e forusorx-e tâbân

Fr.: galaxie lumineuse en infrarouge
