    • Other examples of the non-ionizing part of the electromagnetic spectrum include AM and FM radio waves, microwaves, and infrared waves from heat lamps.
    • Electromagnetic radiation is a term that describes energy waves and includes microwaves, infrared and visible light, as well as ultraviolet light and X-rays.
    • I am looking for any information on the Doppler radars and the effects of microwave radiation.
    • The structures refract, or bend, different types of electromagnetic radiation - such as radar, microwaves, or visible light - in ways natural substances can't.
    • For example, the belief that radio waves or microwaves can be used to cause a person to hear voices transmitted to him seems unlikely.
    • Our bodies use both electrical and chemical communication, and non-ionizing radiation such as microwaves and electricity from power lines can seriously interfere with homoeostasis in the body.
    • According to the pigeon enthusiasts, powerful electromagnetic microwave radiation is destroying the birds' sense of direction.
    • Because microwaves have wavelengths longer than even invisible infrared radiation, they are observed in the radio region of the spectrum with radio telescopes.
    • Digital cell phones send out compressed information through microwave pulses of electromagnetic radiation.
    • Lights that we cannot see like radio waves, microwaves and x-rays fall on either end of the visible spectrum of light.
    • In my universe, what we hear are sound waves, not portions of the electromagnetic spectrum (as microwaves are).
    • Molecular absorption spectra are observed in the infrared and microwave portion of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum.
    • Nor could you know whether it has an electromagnetic field or whether it is strongly emitting gamma rays, X rays, ultraviolet radiation, microwaves, or radio waves.
    • They emit electromagnetic radiation called low intensity pulsed microwave radiation.
    • This astrophysical shortfall came about because an entire window of the electromagnetic spectrum - microwaves - hadn't yet been opened.
    • I could see the radio waves, microwaves, gamma rays, and other optical and non-optical radiation that black holes naturally give off.
    • There are radio waves, microwaves, infrared light, visible light, ultraviolet light, X-rays and gamma rays, all of which form what is known as the ‘electromagnetic spectrum’.
    • The catch is that radar uses radio waves in the microwave frequency range, or approximately one centimeter in wavelength.
    • Turbine blades also emit microwave radiation which can interfere with planes' primary radar, secondary surveillance radar and navigation aids.
    • All the light that we see is made from electromagnetic waves, and so are infra-red and ultraviolet light, microwaves, radio waves and X-rays.
