## Look up: Wavefront

1. Wavefront
In physics, a wavefront is the locus of points having the same phase: a line or curve in 2d, or a surface for a wave propagating in 3d . Since infrared, optical, x-ray and gamma-ray frequencies are so high, the temporal component of electromagnetic waves is usually ignored at these wavelengths, and...

2. Wavefront
A set of points at which the phase of vibration of the physical quantity associated with a wave is the same.The surfaces joining all points of equal phase are known as wavefronts.

5. wavefront
an equiphase surface common to all the components of the vectors of an electromagnetic field, when such a surface exists NOTE - A wavefront is orthogonal at each point to the real part of the wave vector relative to this point.
