Website Detail Page

written by Michael Davidson, Mortimer Abramowitz, and Thomas J. Fellers
This web site is a reference page on electromagnetic radiation.  It discusses the spectrum of light and both the wave and quantum nature of radiation. Also included are descriptions of the physics and applications of the different frequency bands, from gamma rays through radio waves, plus links to interactive Java simulations on the topic.  See Related Materials on this page for a simpler student tutorial by the same authors on the topic of electromagnetic radiation and a closely related Java simulation.

This item is part of a larger collection of of materials on introductory optics developed by Florida State University and The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory.
