The team tested their handiwork by illuminating polished and roughened versions of the material with near-infrared radiation at a wavelength of around 900 nanometres, just beyond the red end of the visible spectrum.
For example, Tiina Karu, PhD, showed that respiratory chain molecules (such as cytochrome c oxidase) in the mitochondria absorb visible and near-infrared radiation.
The first glimmers came from observations of radio waves and X rays, which easily pass through dust, and studies of near-infrared radiation, which can penetrate dust 10 times better than visible-light can.
Over the past two years, as they were developing the detector, Gore, research scientist Yudaya Sivathanu, and their graduate students examined the near-infrared radiation given off by several types of fires covering a wide range of combustible materials.
However, intensive use of glass glazing can cause harsh lighting effects and lead to interior heat buildup from penetration of near-infrared radiation, especially in hot and/or sunny locales.
The tubes, when non-invasively exposed to laser-generated near-infrared radiation, respond by vibrating, creating heat.
Because of its large size, the camera can detect near-infrared radiation from a given region of the sky more than 50 times faster than the detector that McMahon and Hu used at Keck I.
