In news:

It is water soluble, features bright fluorescence emission in the near infrared range, allows scaleup and use in multistep organic synthesis schemes, and is activated with standard reagents (e.g.
Looking at the object's faint light in near-infrared wavelengths, astronomers detected a distinct pattern of hydrogen emissions, a signature of quasars .

In science:

The only access we have to answer these questions is from the infrared emission and obscuration by dust in high-z galaxies.

The interpretation of Figure 5 depends on whether the infrared emission in QSOs is due to dust heating by AGN or massive stars.
Molecular Gas in Infrared-Excess, Optically-Selected QSOs and the Connection with Infrared Luminous Galaxies
As mentioned above, the second possible interpretation of the infrared emission in QSOs is that LIR is primarily due to dust heating by massive stars.

Since T∗ = 3400 K, this estimate of the grain size is such that a ≤ λ/(2π) for all wavelengths of interest both for emission in the infrared and for absorption of the light from the photosphere.

A model of the grain emissivity is necessary to explain our infrared data.
