Definitions

The properties and effects of non-ionising radiations are very diverse. For the purpose of this Policy non-ionising radiations include:

Extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation

Electromagnetic radiation with frequencies in the range 0 Hz (static fields) to 3 kHz, including the 50 Hz electric and magnetic fields associated with the domestic mains electricity supply such as in domestic electrical appliances, electricity supply substations and overhead power lines.

Radiofrequency (RF) radiation

Electromagnetic radiation with frequencies in the range 3 kHz to 300 GHz, which is produced by artificial sources such as visual display units and mobile phones.

Microwave (MW) radiation

Electromagnetic radiation with frequencies in the range 1 GHz to 300 GHz, which is produced by artificial sources such as in microwave ovens and by microwave communication devices. (This radiation is now considered part of Radiofrequency radiation.)

Infrared (IR) radiation

Electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths between 700 nm and 1 mm, which is present in sunlight and produced by artificial sources such as electric radiator heaters.

Visible light

Electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths between 400 nm (blue) and 700 nm (red), which is present in sunlight and produced by numerous artificial sources, including lasers.

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation

Electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths between 100 nm and 400 nm, which is present in sunlight as well as produced by artificial sources such as arc welding and sterilization lamps.

Electric fields

Magnetic fields

  1. Electric fields arise from voltage.
  2. Their strength is measured in Volts per metre (V/m)
  3. An electric field can be present even when a device is switched off.
  4. Field strength decreases with distance from the source.
  5. Most building materials shield electric fields to some extent.
  1. Magnetic fields arise from current flows.
  2. Their strength is measured in amperes per meter (A/m). Commonly, EMF investigators use a related measure, flux density (in microtesla (µT) or millitesla (mT) instead.
  3. Magnetic fields exist as soon as a device is switched on and current flows.
  4. Field strength decreases with distance from the source.
  5. Magnetic fields are not attenuated by most mat

“Mobile telephones, television and radio transmitters and radar produce RF fields. These fields are used to transmit information over long distances and form the basis of telecommunications as well as radio and television broadcasting all over the world. Microwaves are RF fields at high frequencies in the GHz range. In microwaves ovens, we use them to quickly heat food.””At radio frequencies, electric and magnetic fields are closely interrelated and we typically measure their levels as power densities in watts per square metre (W/m2).”

“Key points:

  • The electromagnetic spectrum encompasses both natural and human-made sources of electromagnetic fields.
  • Frequency and wavelength characterise an electromagnetic field. In an electromagnetic wave, these two characteristics are directly related to each other: the higher the frequency the shorter the wavelength.
  • Ionizing radiation such as X-ray and gamma-rays consists of photons which carry sufficient energy to break molecular bonds. Photons of electromagnetic waves at power and radio frequencies have much lower energy that do not have this ability.
  • Electric fields exist whenever charge is present and are measured in volts per metre (V/m). Magnetic fields arise from current flow. Their flux densities are measured in microtesla (µT) or millitesla (mT).
  • At radio and microwave frequencies, electric and magnetic fields are considered together as the two components of an electromagnetic wave. Power density, measured in watts per square metre (W/m2), describes the intensity of these fields.
  • Low frequency and high frequency electromagnetic waves affect the human body in different ways.
  • Electrical power supplies and appliances are the most common sources of low frequency electric and magnetic fields in our living environment. Everyday sources of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields are telecommunications, broadcasting antennas and microwave ovens.”

“Different names refer to different wavelengths….What’s the wave made of? The wave, or “disturbance,” is in an invisible thing called the electric force fieldcharged particles like electrons and protons…[create] electric force fields and electromagnetic waves. …Charges (such as “negative” electrons and “positive” protons) cause each other to move. …Electric force is like an invisible spring, but as the charges move farther apart, a weaker spring pulls them together.”

“….[A] line shows the direction and its length shows the speed. The electron keeps looping around the proton and never crashes into it. [That is]…..an early model of an atom! …the force, or pull, depends only on where you put it, not on the velocity…an electron’s motion depends on both the force on the electron and its velocity, which are often in different directions.”

“There are…concepts of electric force fields and lines of force. There seems to be a “force field” in every episode of Star Trek; it’s like an invisible wall that nothing can penetrate. Is that what a force field really is? Not exactly.”

“In physics, a force field is a way to picture the effects that electric charges have on one another… the force a positive (+) charge exerts on an electron…the charge creates a force “field” in the empty space around it. An electron put down at any place in this force field is pulled towards the + charge; a positive charge set down at the same place is pushed away.”

“What is a “line of force”? You can visualize “lines” of force by looking at the forces created by the field in many different places; imagine connecting the lines from all the electrons. Force field lines “coming out of” the big + charge “go into” the big – charge, so those two charges are “connected” by field lines.”

What is a Wave Front? October 8, 2006

wave front

is an imaginary surface representing corresponding points of a wave that vibrate in unison. When identical waves having a common origin travel through a homogeneous medium, the corresponding crests and troughs at any instant are in phase; i.e., they have completed identical fractions of their cyclic motion, and any surface drawn through all the points of the same phase…

“The important words in the above are the corresponding crests and troughs at any instant are in phase.”

“Now imagine an onion where – in each separate layer of onion skin – the transverse waves, making up that particular skin, have their crests and troughs all in phase at the same instant.”

This onion phase image, then, is the best picture of a scalar, standing wave that anyone will ever give you.

Oh yes, a scalar wave, of necessity, must always be a standing wave….Essentially, standing waves are not absorbed, by the surroundings, while the rest are.

And this is the secret to the construction of our universe where all particles were/are created as scalar, standing waves.

“Why this happens we don’t really know…..It’s hard to envisage an infinite universe but it is not hard to envisage an infinite frequency spectrum and this is what I think we have, full of various frequency waves of all sorts.”

“Every so often just like piano keys, at certain points in this frequency spectrum, scalar standing waves are allowed to develop and remain and are NOT absorbed by the surrounding wave cacophony.”

“These, then, are all our permanent particles…. Now imagine an onion where – in each separate layer of onion skin the transverse waves, making up that particular skin, have their  crests and troughs all in phase at the same instant. This onion phase image, then, is the best picture of a scalar,  standing wave that anyone will ever give you. Oh yes, a scalar wave, of necessity, must always be a standing wave.  Essentially, standing waves are not absorbed, by the surroundings,  while the rest are.”

…an important property…of the wave structure of the universe = the energy exchange mechanism…. by definition a STANDING WAVE is not absorbed or exchanged – otherwise it is no longer standing.

“Exchanges are always resonant – like two piano strings of the same tone. That is about all there is to exchanges and non-exchanges….the Universe is the way it is because it only takes on the wave structures allowed by the rules?The rules of waves in space.”

“The Universe is very simple because ALL the rules are contained in Principle I (the Scalar Wave equation) and Principle II (medium density), and of course ‘space’ itself. These rules create the Atomic Table and that leads to ALL the millions of different metals/atoms/molecules/compounds. We can’t ever calculate them all, but the rules are so simple that we understand how it works.”

“You could almost say “We are all made of onions!”…We understand the Universe. QED…The only thing we don’t understand is ‘space’the wave medium. What is it? How did it get there? Why does it have these wave properties?”

 …”Why do people keep on speculating on useless other things, discrete particles that don’t exist, math that applies to nothing, when ALL their questions are answered by the Wave Structure of Matter? Especially when the real remaining problem is SPACE!”…Most people play an endless gamble hoping that an old idea they once had will turn fruitful. “
“…Standing wave resonances exist in an infinite sea of quantum waves.”
