Infrareid (IR) is inveesible radiant energy, electromagnetic radiation wi langer wavelengths nor thae o veesible licht, extendin frae the nominal reid edge o the veesible spectrum at 700 nanometers (frequency 430 THz) tae 1 mm (300 GHz)[1] (althou fowk can see infrareid up tae at least 1050 nm in experiments[2][3][4][5]).

Journal of the Optical Society of America. 66 (4): 339–341. doi:10.1364/JOSA.66.000339. The foveal sensitivity to several near-infrared laser wavelengths was measured. It was found that the eye could respond to radiation at wavelengths at least as far as 1064 nm. A continuous 1064 nm laser source appeared red, but a 1060 nm pulsed laser source appeared green, which suggests the presence of second harmonic generation in the retina.

Normally the human eye responds to light rays from 390 to 760 nm. This can be extended to a range of 310 to 1,050 nm under artificial conditions.
