(Solved) : Tv Remote Control Emits Ir Light . . .

A TV remote control emits IR light. If the detector on the TV set is not to react to visible light, could it make use of silicon as a “window” with energy gap Eg = 1.14eV? What is the shortest-wavelength light that can strike silicon without causing electrons to jump from the valence band to the conduction band?
