This book highlights new concepts in different fields of electromagnetics. An electromagnetic pulse is a high-intensity, short-duration burst of energy. Ultra-short electromagnetic sources have numerous possible advanced applications including: the creation and investigation of new drugs and other medically significant molecular structures; investigation of energy processes in DNA structures; treatment of cancerous and genetic diseases; development of industrial materials used under high pressure; nuclear waste treatment and storage; fusion reactions.
