radio frequency (RF, rf)

radio frequency (RF, rf)

Radio frequency (RF) is a measurement representing the oscillation rate of electromagnetic radiation spectrum, or electromagnetic radio waves, from frequencies ranging from 300 GHz to as low as 9 kHz. With the use of antennas and transmitters, an RF field can be used for various types of wireless broadcasting and communications.

How radio frequency works

Radio frequency is measured in units called hertz, which represent the number of cycles per second when a radio wave is transmitted. One hertz equals one cycle per second; radio waves range from thousands (kilohertz) to millions (megahertz) to billions (gigahertz) of cycles per second. Microwaves are a type of radio wave with higher frequencies. Radio frequencies are not visible to the human eye.
In a radio wave, the wavelength is inversely proportional to the frequency. If f is the frequency in megahertz and is the wavelength in meters, then
s = 300/f
As the frequency is increased beyond that of the RF spectrum, electromagnetic energy takes the form of infrared (IR), visible, ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma rays.

RF technology

Many types of wireless devices make use of RF fields. Cordless and cellphones, radio and television broadcast stations, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, satellite communications systems, and two-way radios all operate in the RF spectrum. In addition, other appliances outside of communications, including microwave ovens and garage-door openers, operate at radio frequencies. Some wireless devices, like TV remote controls, some cordless computer keyboards and computer mice, operate at IR frequencies, which have shorter electromagnetic wavelengths.
