Some Physical Reminders Regarding Electromagnetic Radiation
Electromagnetic radiations are a form of conveying energy without any material support. Very heterogeneous by the energy that they transmit and by their possibilities of interacting with matter and in particular biological structures, they can be described either as electromagnetic waves (“wave” model), or as a flux of photons* (“particle” model).
