What do you mean by wavelength ? De Broglie wavelength ?

Well, since one molecule of ATP gives around 10^(-19)J upon hydrolysis of the terminal phosphate residue, we have :

$$E = \frac{hc}{\lambda}$$

so $$\lambda$$ is http://www.google.com/search?hs=szY&...9J&btnG=Search

around 2 microns, that's in the infrared photon region.
