Extreme Ultraviolet

(EUV, XUV)
(electromagnetic radiation in the range of 10nm-124nm)

Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV or XUV) is Ultraviolet (UV) radiation at the end far from Visible Light. Its Wavelength is 10-124nm (Ultraviolet is 10 nm to 400 nm).

It has been used to study the Corona of the Sun (revealing the sun's magnetic topology) and to study the Interstellar Medium (ISM).
