Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
Pertaining to or being in the infrared spectrum that is closest to visible light; it is used for studying red dwarfs, red giants, and other celestial objects.
- ‘Studies using near-infrared spectroscopy provide evidence of respiratory muscle dysfunction during exercise in chronic heart failure.’
- ‘A decade later, researchers were able to fabricate photonic crystals that work in the near-infrared and visible regions of the spectrum.’
