Electromagnetic Waves Spectrum and their Range in Frequency and wavelength

Today i want to discuss about electromagnetic wave, How much their wavelength is tall or small and other same objects.So i list any type of them and i write wavelength and frequency of them.

I found a good describing table that is here it's link. I edited it a little.

Light comparison[9]
Name Wavelength Frequency (Hz) Photon Energy (eV)
Gamma ray less than 0.01 nm more than 30 EHz 124 keV – 300+ GeV
X-ray 0.01 nm – 10 nm 30 EHz – 30 PHz 124 eV  – 124 keV
Ultraviolet 10 nm – 400 nm 30 PHz – 790 THz 3.3 eV – 124 eV
Visible 400 nm–700 nm 790 THz – 430 THz 1.7 eV – 3.3 eV
Infrared 700 nm – 1 mm 430 THz – 300 GHz 1.24 meV – 1.7 eV
Microwave 1 mm – 1 meter 300 GHz – 300 MHz 1.24 µeV – 1.24 meV
Radio 20meter – 10m 300 MHz10K Hz 12.4 feV – 1.24 µeV
Acoustic 10m-100,000 km 10KHz-1Hz

So we can examine more IR in below table that is link is here.

Division Name Abbreviation Wavelength Frequency Photon Energy Temperature† Characteristics
Near-infrared NIR, IR-A DIN 0.75–1.4 µm 214–400 THz 886–1653 meV 3,864–2,070 K
(3,591–1,797 °C)
 
Short-wavelength infrared SWIR, IR-B DIN 1.4–3 µm 100–214 THz 413–886 meV 2,070–966 K
(1,797–693 °C)
 
Mid-wavelength infrared MWIR, IR-C DIN; MidIR.[12] Also called intermediate infrared (IIR) 3–8 µm 37–100 THz 155–413 meV 966–362 K
(693–89 °C)
 
Long-wavelength infrared LWIR, IR-C DIN 8–15 µm 20–37 THz 83–155 meV 362–193 K
(89 – −80 °C)
 
Far-infrared FIR 15–1000 µm 0.3–20 THz 1.2–83 meV 193–3 K
(−80.15 – −270.15 °C)
 

here i too share table visible light.Visible light for me is remembering rainbow.

Color Wavelength Frequency Photon energy
violet 380–450 nm 668–789 THz 2.75–3.26 eV
blue 450–495 nm 606–668 THz 2.50–2.75 eV
green 495–570 nm 526–606 THz 2.17–2.50 eV
yellow 570–590 nm 508–526 THz 2.10–2.17 eV
orange 590–620 nm 484–508 THz 2.00–2.10 eV
red 620–750 nm 400–484 THz 1.65–2.00 eV
