- Physics : The study of forces and energies in space and time.
- Electrostatics : Add brief definition or description
- Dielectric : an insulating, but polarizable, material that can be solid, liquid or gas; its important characterizing property is the relative permittivity (aka dielectric constant).
- Maxwell equations : Mathematical equations describing the interrelationship between electric and magnetic fields; dependence of the fields on electric charge- and current- densities.
- Dielectrophoresis : Add brief definition or description
- Electrorotation : The rotation of dielectric particles induced by application of rotating electric fields.
- Relative permeability : A factor describing magnetizability as a proportionality between magnetic flux density and magnetic field in a magnetic material or medium.
- Vacuum (partial) : A realizable vacuum with a gaseous pressure that is much less than atmospheric.
- Vacuum (classical) : The term classical vacuum as used in classical electromagnetism and in the definition of the SI units refers to an ideal reference medium devoid of all particles, with ideal properties. These ideal properties include: independence from field strengths, direction, frequency, or polarization, and from temperature.
- Vacuum (quantum electrodynamic) : The term quantum electrodynamic vacuum, or QED vacuum, refers to the ground state of the electromagnetic field, which is subject to fluctuations about a dormant zero average-field condition.
