magnetic field

n.
A condition found in the region around a magnet or an electric current, characterized by the existence of a detectable magnetic force at every point in the region and by the existence of magnetic poles.

magnetic field

n
(General Physics) a field of force surrounding a permanent magnet or a moving charged particle, in which another permanent magnet or moving charge experiences a force. Compare electric field

magnet′ic field′


n.
1. a region of space near a magnet, electric current, or moving charged particle in which a magnetic force acts on any other magnet, electric current, or moving charged particle.
2. a vector quantity defined by the force exerted on a given object at each point in such a region.

However, the study lacked major design parameters like gain, directivity and h-field which are required to claim a better antenna design.
That changing h-field induces an e-field to the right, and this continues as an e-field/h-field leap-frog, as long as the signal and "ground" are well-behaved, allowing the signal to propagate through the dielectric, guided by the signal and ground structures.
The SX 1 near-field probe set includes a new member: the SX-B 3-1 H-field probe for frequencies between 1 GHz and 3 GHz, whose measurement coil is arranged orthogonally to the probe shaft and thus rests directly on the surface of the PCB when the probe head is held vertically.
In this paper the effect of size of subject under exposure on SAR, E-Field strength and H-Field strength are simulated.
Users can toggle between E-field and H-field readings at the press of a button, and the instrument features automatic zeroing at power-on and every 15 minutes.
We can also see the H-field lines at 40 MHz in the human body through the mapping illustrated by Fig.
Using OpenMP multithreading, update the H-field components; Using MPI message passing, exchange the H-field of boundaries; Using OpenMP multithreading, update the E-field components; Apply boundary conditions; Until predetermined time steps is reached;
Although the E-field and H-field attributes inside a microwave DRF are hard to observe, an accurate analysis of the overall inhomogeneous structure is inevitably required for practical design and application considerations.
Therefore, a reduced standard, NSA 73-2A, was issued which called for 50 dB electrical/planewave protection to 100 MHz, dropping to 40 dB at 1 GHz, and H-field protection of approximately 10 dB at 1 kHz to 50 dB near 10 MHz.
