The electromagnetic spectrum covers a wide range of wavelengths and photon energies. Light used to 'see' an object must have a wavelength about the same. The electromagnetic spectrum, starting from the waves with the longest wavelengths (and least energy), consists of radio waves, microwaves, infrared radiation, visible light, ultraviolet radiation, x-rays, and gamma radiation. Members of the family differ from one another only in their wavelength, or frequency.
