  Window of Universe: Astronomy: Window of Universe - MILLIMETER WAVES

MILLIMETER WAVES

Millimeter and submillimeter telescopes address wavelengths corresponding to the lower temperatures. Optical lenses and mirrors are replaced with radio "mirrors"—radio dishes and receivers specifically tuned to receive short-wavelength radio signals.

One of the largest millimeter-wave telescopes, with a dish 50 feet (15 m) in diameter, is the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope on Mauna Kea, Hawaii.

The millimeter window is ideal for observing giant molecular clouds in which stars are likely to form.
