Wavelength Alteration - Visible Light and Infrared
Lumokinesis is the psychical influence of the electromagnetic spectrum including visible light and part of the near-infrared range.
Influence includes any form of electromagnetic radiation capable of causing a direct visual sensation directly within wavelengths of 380-950 nanometers whether wavelengths are pure or mixed.
The wavelength of light is the spatial period of the wave, i.e. the distance over which the wave’s shape repeats. It is typically determined by considering the distance between consecutive corresponding points of the same phase (crests, troughs, or zero crossings).
Electromagnetic radiation is classified by wavelength into several types. It is hypothesized that experients adjust the wavelength rather than the frequency when altering light.
Experients of lumokinetic phenomena appear more skilled in decreasing the wavelengths of light, rather than increasing, but both types of alternations appear possible.
In exercises, experients alter infrared light by shortening its wavelength, whereby resulting in red visible light. When this happens, a red light source will appear due to modification, rather than creation.
Because scientific meters used to measure the wavelength of light typically cost around a thousand to two thousand dollars, most experients trust their eyes to notice alterations in regards to color.
An alternative option is for an experient to obtain a lux meter, which can be used to measure intensity at an affordable price.
