Radiation that carries enough energy to excite an atom or molecule, but not enough energy to remove an electron from the atom or molecule. See ionizing radiation.
Radiation of electromagnetic form which does not have a high enough energy level to ionize (i.e., remove electrons from) material with which it comes in contact. Examples of nonionizing radiation include lasers, microwaves, extremely low frequency (ELF) electromagnetic fields, infrared and ultraviolet light, ultrasound, etc.
Forms of radiation, eg., infrared, radio and microwaves.
Non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation incorporates all radiations and fields of the electromagnetic spectrum that do not normally have enough entergy to produce ionization in matter. NIRs have an energy per photon less than about 12eV, wavelengths longer than 100 nm, and frequencies lower than 300 THz.
Electromagnetic or particulate radiation that lacks sufficient energy to remove electrons from the outer shells of atoms. Related to electromagnetic radiation. Related to gamma ray. Related to infrared radiation. Related to ionizing radiation. Related to particulate radiation. Related to radiation. Related to x-ray.
Forms of radiant energy such as radio waves, microwaves, infrared light, and ordinary light that do not have enough energy to cause ionization of atoms in living tissue. Compare ionizing radiation.
radiation which does not normally cause ionization. Examples include light and radio waves.
Includes visible light, ultraviolet light, infrared light, and radio waves.
