Radiant Energy

Radiant energy, energy that is converted by electromagnetic radiation, such as light, X-rays, gamma rays, and thermal radiation, which may be represent in terms of either various packets of energy, called photons, or stable electromagnetic waves. The conservation of energy law lack that the radiant energy absorb or emitted by a system be included in the total energy.

The term is most generally used in the sectors of radiometry, solar energy, heating and lighting, but is also used limited periodically in other sectors (such as telecommunications). In applications affect transmission of power from one region to another, "radiant energy" is generally recycled to regulate to the electromagnetic waves themselves, rather than their energy (a property of the waves).
