It is generally supposed that the only significant reaction produced by absorption, in the tissues, of infra-red radiation-and it applies practically to the radiation from electric lamps-is to cause a rise in temperature of the tissues, there being no attendant chemical effect such as accompanies ultra-violet irradiation. Thus, whereas for ultra-violet irradiation the energy absorption in a single treatment is of the order of 10 calories, in the case of infra-red radiation it is more than 10,000 times larger.
