The electromagnetic spectrum

ElectromagneticThe electromagnetic spectrum is the range of all possible frequencies of electromagnetic radiation.[1] The “electromagnetic spectrum” of an object has a different meaning, and is instead the characteristic distribution of electromagnetic radiation emitted or absorbed by that particular object.

The electromagnetic spectrum extends from below the low frequencies used for modern radio communication to gamma radiation at the short-wavelength (high-frequency) end, thereby covering wavelengths from thousands of kilometers down to a fraction of the size of an atom. The limit for long wavelengths is the size of the universe itself, while it is thought that the short wavelength limit is in the vicinity of the Planck length,[2] although in principle the spectrum is infinite and continuous.

Most parts of the electromagnetic spectrum are used in science for spectroscopic and other probing interactions, as ways to study and characterize matter.[3] In addition, radiation from various parts of the spectrum has found many other uses for communications and manufacturing (see electromagnetic radiation for more applications).

    I am starting a new internet website directory and was wanting to know if I can submit your blog?

    I’m trying to mature my directory little by little by hand so that it retains top quality. I’ll make sure and put your blog in the best category and I’ll additionally use, “The electromagnetic spectrum imagcwp journal” as your anchor text. Please let me know if this is ok with you by e-mailing me. Thanks
