In this paper we have extended our previous work \citep{probe1} and considered spectral characteristics of interstellar non-relativistic Type-II and Type-III Von-Neumann probes. It has been shown that by means of the proton capture, required for replication, strong bremstrahlung emission will be generated. We have found that for both types of civilizations the probes might be visible mainly in the infrared spectral band, but as it has been found the probes might be visible in the ultraviolet as…

Abstract In this paper we consider efficiency of self-reproducing extraterrestrial Von-Neumann micro scale robots and analyse the observational characteristics. By examining the natural scenario of

Search for Artificial Stellar Sources of Infrared Radiation

It is proposed that a search for sources of infrared radiation should accompany the recently initiated search for interstellar radio communications.
