Gail Ethier asked the Naked Scientists:Light can act as a wave or a particle, but light is just one part of theelectromagnetic spectrum. Is a photon just in the visible light area of thespectrum? Is there such a thing as a 'microwave photon' or 'ultraviolet photon'? Do other wavelengths of electromagnetic energy act as a particle?What do you think?
Microwave spectroscopy is good evidence that microwave radiation is also quantized.Similarly, NMR spectra are recorded with radio frequency radiation.
