Maximum displacement of an oscillation or a wave

Attenuation of the intensity of particle or wave radiation when passing through matter. The energy of the radiation is converted into another energy form (e.g. heat). The energy absorbed by biological tissue forms the basis for the evaluation of the possible effects of the radiation on the organism.

A number of different effects occurring on exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields, separate from the heating of tissue.
