Terms that are frequently used in the knowledge pages are explained in the glossary. Many biological and medicinal terms are listed. This does not automatically mean that EMFs were a health problem. The connections between EMF, biology and health are shown in the topic pages.

In addition, we also recommend the glossary of the EMF-portal of the Uniklinik RWTH Aachen.

Field strength

The field strength is a measure of the energy which an electric or magnetic field exerts on a charged (in the case of magnetic field also a moving) particle. The strength of electric fields is quoted in Volts per metre (V/m), the strength of the magnetic fields is normally given in Tesla respectively Microtesla (T, µT).
