Nuclear electromagnetic pulse
A nuclear electromagnetic pulse is commonly abbreviated as nuclear EMP, or NEMP, also sometimes called as transient electromagnetic disturbance. It a time-varying electromagnetic radiation created by a nuclear explosion. The characteristics of a particular nuclear EMP event vary specifically according to the number of factors, among which the altitude of the detonation is an important one. The development of the EMP is shaped by the initial nuclear radiation from the explosion. Specifically, the gamma radiation. The management of EMP effects is an important branch of Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) engineering. Weapons have been developed to deliver the damaging effects of high-energy EMP.
