Talk:Extremely high frequency
|WikiProject Physics||(Rated C-class, Mid-importance)|
True or false: someone has coined a name for the next member of the frequency system after this. 184.108.40.206 22:50, 6 Aug 2004 (UTC)
Would this heat-wave gun be an example of milimeter-wave technology? http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/6300985.stm If so, should the article reference the prototype? -P-
- Yep. Since it uses a 3mm wave.
- Exposure to 3mm waves is shown to be painful and causes heat-burns when exposed in high-power 3mm.
This article should be called "Millimeter-waves", since that is the name used everywhere (except on WP). Calling it "Extremely high frequency" is anachronstic. Setreset (talk) 08:12, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
- "Extremely High Frequency" or EHF is the official designation of this band by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) standards body 1 the same as VHF or UHF are for those bands. The term "extremely high frequency" seems to be widely used in professional electrical engineering literature. However, maybe the name "millimeter waves" should be moved up into the lead sentence. --ChetvornoTALK 19:46, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
