Heat mirrors has been there for a long time, especially in our lifetime. Pp used it to cook food in Africa, especially at Red Cross Concentration Camp. LOL.

Infrared radiation takes up a certain spectrum in the EM Spectrum, so it has a range of frequency, not just one particular value.

Right, I know it has a range, but does the vibration of molecules fall into the same range, or does it spill over into other ranges?

So lets say I light a candle. How would I measure the frequency of the IR coming out of it, and would it vary like crazy or be one specific value? Is the frequency a function of how "hot" the heat source is?
