For wireless microphones, the loss that occurs when a transmitted signal passes through a material that absorbs a portion of the RF energy, reducing the signal level available to the receiver.
Attenuation of an electromagnetic wave or energy encountered in penetrating a shield caused by the induction of current flow in the barrier and the resulting loss. Absorption loss is usually stated in decibels.
That part of the transmission loss caused by the dissipation or conversion of electrical, electromagnetic, or acoustic energy into other forms of energy as a result of its interaction with a material medium.
