In quick review, an inductive sensor generates an electromagnetic wave at a specific tuned frequency.
The main characteristic of the laser's electromagnetic waves is the wavelength, which is measured in nanometers.
Radio has been around since 1898, when Guglielmo Marconi started to experiment with electromagnetic waves as a way to send signals without wires.
Structures incorporating meta-materials can be designed to guide electromagnetic waves around an object, only to have them emerge on the other side as if they had passed through an empty volume of space, thereby cloaking the object.
The secret to the cloak 's exactly canceling waves is a "metamaterial," a man-made material that doesn't appear in nature and that has, as one paper put it, "exotic electromagnetic properties".
More so, we are simply running out of space within the electromagnetic spectrum for radio waves.
Hertz is known for his discovery of the existence of electromagnetic waves.
The range of electromagnetic radiation (electromagnetic waves) in our known universe, which includes visible light.

In science:

Gravitational Magnetic Field ]From eq.(12.3-6), we can see that the equations of motion of gravitational wave in vacuum are quite similar to those of electromagnetic wave.
Gauge Theory of Gravity
The phenomenological behavior of gravitational wave must also be similar to that of electromagnetic wave.

This problem is very similar to the problem of the propagation of the electromagnetic wave in the random media characterized by the gaussian distribution function (see e.g. ref. ).
