cosmic microwave background radiation (CMBR)
tâbeš-e rizmowj-e paszaminé-ye keyhâni
Fr.: rayonnement du fond cosmique microonde
The diffuse → electromagnetic radiation in the → microwave band, coming from all directions in the sky, which consists of relic photons left over from the very hot, early phase of the → Big Bang. More specifically, the CMBR belong to the → recombination era, when the → Universe was about 380,000 years old and had a temperature of about 3,000 K, or a → redshift of about 1,100. The photons that last scattered at this epoch have now cooled down to a temperature of 2.73 K. They have a pure → blackbody spectrum as they were at → thermal equilibrium before → decoupling. The CMB was discovered serendipitously in 1965 by Penzias and Wilson (ApJ L 142, 419) and was immediately interpreted as a relic radiation of the Big Bang by Dicke et al. (1965, ApJL 142, 383). Such a radiation had been predicted before by Gamow (1948, Nature 162, 680) and by Alpher and Herman (1948, Nature 162, 774). This discovery was a major argument in favor of the Big Bang theory. In 1992, the satellite → Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) discovered the first anisotropies in the temperature of the CMB with an amplitude of about 30 µK. See also: → cosmic microwave background anisotropy, → dipole anisotropy, → CMB lensing, → CMB angular power spectrum, → acoustic peak, → baryon acoustic oscillation, → WMAP.
→ cosmic; → microwave; → background; → radiation.
Fr.: rayonnement dipolaire

Fr.: rayonnement électromagnétique
Radiation propagating in the form of an advancing wave in electric and magnetic fields. It includes radio waves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, X-rays, and gamma rays.
→ electromagnetic; → radiation.
tâbeš-e gerâneši (#)
Fr.: rayonnement gravitationnel
The → energy transported by → gravitational waves. Gravitational radiation is to → gravity what light is to → electromagnetism.
→ gravitational; → radiation.
tâbeš-e Hawking (#)
Fr.: rayonnement de Hawking
The radiation produced by a → black hole when → quantum mechanical effects are taken into account. According to quantum physics, large fluctuations in the → vacuum energy occurs for brief moments of time. Thereby virtual particle-antiparticle pairs are created from vacuum and annihilated. If → pair production happens just outside the → event horizon of a black hole, as soon as these particles are formed they would both experience drastically different → gravitational attractions due to the sharp gradient of force close to the black hole. One particle will accelerate toward the black hole and its partner will escape into space. The black hole used some of its → gravitational energy to produce these two particles, so it loses some of its mass if a particle escapes. This gradual loss of mass over time means the black hole eventually evaporates out of existence. See also → Bekenstein formula, → Hawking temperature.
Named after the British physicist Stephen Hawking (1942-2018), who provided the theoretical argument for the existence of the radiation in 1974; → radiation.
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.
intensity of radiation
Fr.: intensité de rayonnement
The rate of emitted energy from unit surface area through unit solid angle. The radiation from a surface has different intensities in different directions.

tâbeš-e yonandé (#)
Fr.: rayonnement ionisant
A photon that has enough energy to remove an electron from an atom or molecule, thus producing an ion and free electrons.
