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.

"All the results were positive from the measurement of the level of electromagnetic radiation emitted from communication stations conducted in the field of electric (E-field), the field of magnetic (H-field) and the field of power (Power Density)," he said.
Test Instrumentation H-field component azimuth patterns, final radiated magnetic field measurements, and falloff measurements were all made using the following calibrated instruments:
However, the study lacked major design parameters like gain, directivity and h-field which are required to claim a better antenna design.
The changing e-field induces a changing magnetic field ("h-field," *D) into the page, since the signal propagates from left to right.
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.
The array was illuminated by a plane wave and the efficiency of the array was numerically calculated for three angles [theta] = 0[degrees], 30[degrees], and 60[degrees] measured from a line parallel to the H-field vector as shown in the Figure 3(b).
The combination of these SRR elements with thin wire media gave rise to a so called left-handed metamaterial structure, characterized by exhibiting antiparallel phase and group velocity and E-field, H-field, and k-vectors forming a left-handed triad instead of a conventional right-handed one [6, 7].
When the case of partial wall is compared with the case of complete wall, the results show that the leaked h-field from feeding-pin of the antenna and the ground plane is larger for the former.
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.
