  1. electromagnetic radiation

English - English

  1. Radiation (quantized as photons) consisting of oscillating electric and magnetic fields oriented perpendicularly to each other, moving through space electromagnetic radiation
  2. radiation consisting of waves of energy associated with electric and magnetic fields resulting from the acceleration of an electric charge electromagnetic radiation
  3. Energy propagated through free space or through a material medium in the form of electromagnetic waves. Examples include radio waves, infrared radiation, visible light, ultraviolet radiation, X rays, and gamma rays. Electromagnetic radiation exhibits wavelike properties such as reflection, refraction, diffraction, and interference, but also exhibits particlelike properties in that its energy occurs in discrete packets, or quanta. Though all types of electromagnetic radiation travel at the same speed, they vary in frequency and wavelength, and interact with matter differently. A vacuum is the only perfectly transparent medium; all others absorb some frequencies of electromagnetic radiation electromagnetic radiation
  4. any type of electromagnetic wave (waves composed of undulating electrical fields and magnetic fields) electromagnetic radiation
