I know that the Lyman series corresponds to the UV region and the Balmer series is associated with the visible region, but is there a series name that corresponds to the infrared region?

I looked it up and the Paschen, Brackett, and Pfund series are all in the infrared region. I am assuming we will not be required to know these though.

Hope this helps!

Yeah! There are actually three series that are part of the infrared region. My TA touched on this subject a little during discussion.

Here's a picture that helped me understand the series a little more.
