Hint:The region between frequencies ${10^{12}}$ to ${10^{14}}Hz$ is the infrared region. Electromagnetic radiations are usually expressed in terms of frequency, wavelength or energy.

First let us consider the electromagnetic spectrum. It covers a different range of all types of electromagnetic radiations. Such as microwaves, infrared, ultraviolet, X-rays etc. There are radiations below $1Hz$ to ${10^{25}}Hz$ frequencies in the spectrum. These are divided into different bands and are known with different names. They also have different properties and characteristics.
Now we see that waves of frequency $3 \times {10^{13}}Hz$ belong to the infrared region.
The region between frequencies ${10^{12}}$ to ${10^{14}}Hz$ is the infrared region and is divided into three regions based on wavelengths. Far, mid and near infrared. These infrared rays are not visible to human eyes but we detect it as heat. Repeated exposures with infrared can cause pain in skin and eyes.
