1. What type of electromagnetic radiation is not created electro-optically?

Light from a fire

Light from a laser

Anything invisible

2. Why aren't glass lenses used in infrared systems?

Legal ramifications prevent the use of glass for safety reasons

Most glass is opaque to infrared

3. Why isn't the use of photographic film consider part of electro-optics?

Detection is through chemical reactions and not electrical

It is part of electro-optics with the new digital cameras
