Take a closer look at this fantastic high quality image of the Electromagnetic Radiation Spectrum created by Taken from the “How to read this chart” area of the image:

This chart is organized in octaves (frequency doubling/halving) starting at 1Hz and going higher (2, 4, 8, etc) and lower (1/2, 1/4, etc). The octave is a natural way to represent frequency.

The informational headlines are as follows:

Ultraviolet Light, Emission and Absorption, Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation, Television, Radio Bands, Sound, Gravity Waves, Brain Waves, Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR), Gamma Rays, Visible Spectrum, Infrared Radiation, LASER, Polarization, Refraction, Reflection.
