The artificial optical radiation (AOR) are electromagnetic radiation with wavelength between 1mm (microwaves) and 100nm (X ray) generated from not natural sources.
They are divide in:
There is another distinction: coherent or not coherent and continuous or pulsed in order to the way in which they are issued.
- Coherent AOR: Optical radiations issued from a LASER
- Not coherent AOR: optical radiations issued from the sun, incandescent bulbs, electric arc from welding machines
