Did You Know? In 1800 the astronomer Sir William Herschel discovered infrared light when he was exploring the relationship between heat and light. Herschel used a prism to split a beam of sunlight into a rainbow of colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet) and measured how hot a thermometer got when it was placed in each of the various bands. Then he tried placing the thermometer just outside the red band, where there was no visible color at all. The thermometer heated up, just as if light were shining on it. Further experiments showed that this invisible form of light behaved just like visible light in many ways; for example, it could be reflected by a mirror. We now call this form of light infrared light. Another kind of invisible light, ultraviolet light, is found just beyond the violet end of the spectrum.
