View Resource The Electromagnetic Spectrum

Electromagnetism and the electromagnetic spectrum is the focus of this resource, created in part by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Authors Gibb, Lochner and Newman describe each space telescope that NASA has launched as well as its observing range in the electromagnetic spectrum. The site features additional information on: radio observatories, microwave observatories,...

View Resource There's More to Light Than Meets the Eye

This website, authored by Debra Fisher and George Mussser for the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, outlines the properties of light, using visual demonstrations, analogies, and a classroom activity called "Making a Rainbow". Topics such as wavelength, frequency, and light sources are all included. This resource is just one section from The Astronomical Society of the Pacific's newsletter for...

View Resource Electromagnetic Radiation (Light)

Authored by Nick Strobel, "Astronomy Notes" is an educational resource for introductory astronomy classes for undergraduates. This section describes general properties of light, frequency, the spectrum, and temperature. Other topics include: light production, continuous spectra, emission lines, absorption lines and the Bohr model for the atom. There is also an explanation of the Doppler Effect...

View Resource Sketches of the History of Electromagnetics

Authored by Jeff Biggus, this website provides a history of light, electricity, magnetism and electromagnetic theory, placed in a linked timeline order with corresponding biographical sketches. The sketch traces the history from antiquity to the experiments done by Patrick Blackett and Giuseppe Occhialini in 1933. The page is personally authored and published, but Biggus does provide the sources...

View Resource The Galactic Center at Different Wavelengths

This page from then University of California, Los Angeles Galactic Center Group provides images of the galactic center over most of the electromagnetic spectrum. Each image has explanatory text, and a background section explains the value of observing the galactic center at various wavelengths.
