In physics, electromagnetic radiation (EMR) consists of waves of the electromagnetic (EM) field, propagating through space, carrying electromagnetic radiant energy.

## Quantum mechanics

Fundamental theory in physics that provides a description of the physical properties of nature at the scale of atoms and subatomic particles.

Fundamental theory in physics that provides a description of the physical properties of nature at the scale of atoms and subatomic particles.

Quantum mechanics differs from classical physics in that energy, momentum, angular momentum, and other quantities of a bound system are restricted to discrete values (quantization), objects have characteristics of both particles and waves (wave–particle duality), and there are limits to how accurately the value of a physical quantity can be predicted prior to its measurement, given a complete set of initial conditions (the uncertainty principle).

## Wavelength

Spatial period of a periodic wave—the distance over which the wave's shape repeats.

Spatial period of a periodic wave—the distance over which the wave's shape repeats.

Sinusoids are the simplest traveling wave solutions, and more complex solutions can be built up by superposition.

## Frequency

Number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit of time.

Number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit of time.

For cyclical phenomena such as oscillations, waves, or for examples of simple harmonic motion, the term frequency is defined as the number of cycles or vibrations per unit of time.

## Standing wave

In physics, a standing wave, also known as a stationary wave, is a wave that oscillates in time but whose peak amplitude profile does not move in space.

## Longitudinal wave

Longitudinal waves are waves in which the vibration of the medium is parallel ("along") to the direction the wave travels and displacement of the medium is in the same (or opposite) direction of the wave propagation.

## Superposition principle

Sum of the responses that would have been caused by each stimulus individually.

Sum of the responses that would have been caused by each stimulus individually.

Fourier analysis is particularly common for waves.

## Wave interference

In physics, interference is a phenomenon in which two waves combine by adding their displacement together at every single point in space and time, to form a resultant wave of greater, lower, or the same amplitude.
