Carbon infra-red (CIR) is ideal for applications in the food industry, such as surface browning, as it delivers medium wave, infra-red radiation, which is perfectly suited to evaporating water from products at a very high power density.

energy-saving 'smart paints' can reduce heat loss by reflecting infra-red radiation.
the shape of the hot material that surrounds the black hole was inferred from the observation of x-rays that emanate from very hot material that is close to the black hole, and from infra-red radiation that derives from warm material much further from the core of the black hole.
However, the sun also emits electromagnetic radiation that the human eye is incapable of seeing, called 'invisible light.' The spectrum of 'colors' of the invisible light of the sun includes infra-red radiation (which gives the skin the sensation of warmth), ultraviolet radiation (which causes the skin to tan), microwave radiation (used for cooking in microwave ovens), radio waves, x-rays, and so forth.
