Light is electromagnetic radiation within a certain portion of the electromagnetic
spectrum. ... The primary properties of visible light are intensity, propagation
direction, frequency or wavelength...
The light that we see everyday is only a fraction of the total energy emitted by the
sun incident on the earth. Sunlight is a form of "electromagnetic radiation" and ...

Describe the wide variety of opportunities for photonics technicians. • Define and
use basic radiometric units. • Define the following properties of light: − Speed.
One of the properties of light is that it reflects off surfaces. Among other things,
this reflection allows us to see images in mirrors. We see the images in mirrors as
In modern physics, light or electromagnetic radiation may be viewed in one of two
complementary ways: as a wave in an abstract electromagnetic field, or as a ...
General Properties of Light. In vacuum light always travels at the same speed: c =
3.0 x 10<sup>8</sup> m/s . Until the middle of the 1800's, the generally accepted theory of ...
Light is a medium of energy through which we perceive and interact with our
environment. It is the visible frequency range of electromagnetic radiation which ...
Jan 23, 2014 ... Properties of Light. ... Refraction Light follows the Law of Reflection: “The angle of
incidence is equal to Dispersion The process in which light is ...
In Lesson 1, we will investigate the variety of behaviors, properties and
characteristics of light that seem to support the wave model of light. On this page,
we will ...
Properties of Light. • Waves, particles and EM spectrum. • Interaction with matter.
• Absorption. • Reflection, refraction and scattering. • Polarization and diffraction.
